An Israel court has rejected Anatoly Vitznudel's claim that the anti-impotency drug Viagra caused him to lose control and rape a woman.
Anatoly Vitznudel admitted kidnapping the woman at knife point and driving her to a wooded area, but denied responsibility for the rape and claimed that the woman had made sexual advances toward him and given him the Viagra.
A three-judge panel rejected Vitnudel's defense but wrote that Viagra was a contributing factor in the rape. Vitnudel has not yet been sentenced.
