An Austrian court has ordered a new trial for an Iraqi refugee convicted of raping a 10-year-old boy at a public swimming pool. The man was convicted on counts of rape of a minor and serious sexual assault. The court upheld the sexual assault conviction but set aside the rape conviction, saying the lower court should have done more to ascertain whether the man knew the boy didn't give consent to the sexual act.
