Posted: Updated:

An Irish man was found guilty this week of raping his mother on Mother's Day in 2008.

The unidentified man had told a jury that he and his mother did have sex, but that it was consensual, and that "one thing led to another" according to the Irish Times.

The man, from Dublin, will be sentenced in October.

The 65-year-old victim testified that she was reading a book in bed at 11 pm when her son rang the doorbell on Mother's Day, according to the Irish Examiner.

After having a few drinks with her son at home, the mother said she blacked out. When she came-to, she said, she was lying on the ground and her son was having sex with her.

“When I realized what was happening I said leave me alone," she testified. "I kept saying leave me alone.”

The Independent reported that the jury found the man guilty of incest and rape.
