GHB Rape Conviction Stands

A judge in British Columbia has let a conviction for GHB rape stand. From the Victoria, British Columbia Times Columnist:
A Victoria man convicted of sexual assault while he and the female victim were high on the "date-rape" drug GHB has had an appeal of his conviction dismissed by the B.C. Court of Appeal.

Michael Ryan Goodliffe was sentenced on July 8, 2003, to 30 months in a federal penitentiary after being convicted on one charge and acquitted on two others.

The December 2001 assault occurred after the 17-year-old girl came home to her Fifth Street basement suite to find her boyfriend and Goodliffe there. She was drunk after visiting friends and accepted a dose of GHB from one of the two males. She passed out and awoke later to find Goodliffe having sex with her.
