Three Toronto police officers have been acquitted, on Wednesday morning, sexual assault against an agent of the parking lot.

Police officers Leslie Nyznik, Sameer Kara and Joshua Cabero were accused of sexually assaulting the woman in a Toronto city centre hotel. The judge said the Crown failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the woman didn't consent.

Molloy also touched on a critical piece of evidence for the defence - security video footage that showed the complainant walking normally into the hotel while talking with two of the accused officers.

She said she went to the hotel room with Mr Nyznik and Mr Cabero because her friend Mr Kara was there, and she wanted to continue partying. Kara was vomiting, staggering and sick from over-drinking, court heard.

The woman - a parking enforcement officer whose identity is protected by a publication ban - has testified that she had several drinks during the course of the night and felt powerless and unable to move or speak when the three men had sex with her against her wishes.

Once there, she said she was sexually assaulted while she passed in and out of consciousness on the bed next to Mr Kara, who was asleep.

The 51 Division officers have been suspended with pay.
