The younger brother of NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet has thanked his supporters and asked for privacy after a jury found him not guilty of raping a Sydney university student at her college party.
Jean Claude Perrottet said he was “very pleased that the court has found me innocent”, in a written statement issued after the verdict was delivered on Thursday.
“I know this trial has been very difficult, not only for me, but also for others, and for family and friends,” Mr Perrottet said.
“I wish the best for every person who in any way has been involved.”
The 20-year-old was accused of sexually assaulting a young University of Sydney student at a St John’s College formal in October 2015.
