An Invercargill man who stood trial accused of rape has been found not guilty.

In a jury trial in Invercargill District Court this week in front of Judge Raoul Neave, Mose Isaako Aliivaa, 27, denied he had raped a woman on April 14 this year.

Aliivaa had admitted being abusive towards the woman, who was his former girlfriend, but said the sex on April 14 was consensual. He had already admitted five counts of male assaults female.

He was found not guilty of rape by the jury.
