'Railway Rapist' cleared of sexual assault

Alexandra Patrikios

An infamous sex offender dubbed the "Railway Rapist" and jailed over a spate of attacks in the 1990s has been acquitted of sexually assaulting a woman last year.

Troy Allan Burley had been on trial in the Brisbane District Court having pleaded not guilty to forcibly removing the woman's singlet against her will and exposing her to another man at a motel in March, 2015.

A jury took less than two hours on Thursday to find the 38-year-old not guilty of one count of sexual assault.
