GUILTY: Barr had claimed the man ini­ti­ated the sex A MUM faces jail af­ter she tried to have sex with a younger man as he slept.

El­iz­a­beth Barr, 40, launched her­self at the 27-year-old at a flat, leav­ing him in tears.

Barr claimed any­thing that hap­pened was con­sen­sual – and that the vic­tim had “pan­icked” be­cause he had cheated on his girl­friend.

But the mum-of-two was con­victed fol­low­ing a trial at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court, hav­ing been found guilty of try­ing to have sex with the man while he was sleep­ing and un­able to con­sent.

She had only met the man hours be­fore the in­ci­dent.

They ended up with oth­ers at the flat in Easter­house and Barr and the man were soon alone in the liv­ing room.

A woman at the flat said she was in bed later when the man came to the door of the room.

Prose­cu­tor Harry Find­lay asked: “How did he ap­pear?” She replied: “He was cry­ing.”

Po­lice were later alerted and Barr was held. Giv­ing ev­i­dence at the trial, Barr in­sisted the man ini­ti­ated sex.

Asked what then hap­pened, she added: “He picked up his phone and his face fell. He said, ‘I need to call a taxi. I need to go home’.

“He was pan­ick­ing about his girl­friend find­ing out he had cheated. I said, ‘Ei­ther tell her the truth or tell her noth­ing’.”

When asked if he seemed “un­will­ing” to par­tic­i­pate. Barr replied: “It was him that asked me.”

The Sher­iff de­ferred sen­tenc­ing for re­ports.
