Lawyer accused of sexually assaulting Vancouver woman found not guilty
A lawyer who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a Vancouver hotel room has been acquitted of the charge.
The jury verdict in the case of Robert Zeunert, 59, came early Friday afternoon, after less than a day of deliberations in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver.
The alleged victim testified that she was heavily intoxicated when she met Zeunert by chance at the Railway Club on Dunsmuir Street on Feb. 18, 2020, where she’d gone to have some drinks with colleagues after work.
She said that after they’d spent several hours at the club, they left but she was intoxicated and unsteady on her feet.
The woman said that she and Zeunert walked from the club to the Sutton Place Hotel, where Zeunert, a resident of the northern B.C. community of Fort St. John, was staying while attending a meeting of the Law Foundation of B.C.
