An Orthodox student who groped a 17-year-old Austrian tourist during a game of spin-the-bottle has been given a nine-month supervision order.

Menachem Chaim Unger, 21, was convicted of sexual assault after he groped the girl at his friend's flat.

Middlesex University student Mr Unger and three others played the sexually-charged game after a Shabbat dinner at the Golders Green Hillel House. During the game, players stripped off, while the victim was asked to remove her underwear and give them to Mr Unger.

She said that Unger had told her: "You will regret it if you don't sleep with me." But he told the court that nothing sexual had happened at all.

The sentence includes a curfew for four months from 9pm to 7am. He must also pay a charge of £400.
