Two elite French police officers were found guilty on Thursday of gang raping a Canadian tourist inside the judicial police's prestigious Paris headquarters after a trial held steps from the scene of the crime.

The men, Nicolas Redouane, 49, and Antoine Quirin, 40, had denied raping 39-year-old Emily Spanton, saying the sex was consensual. They were also ordered to pay 20,000 euros in damages.

She told the trial she had been invited to tour the police headquarters after meeting a group of officers in a bar, but when she went there she was gang-raped.

The officers, who had not been jailed pending trial, faced up to 20 years in prison.

Spanton was "easy prey", Courroye said.

"I couldn't see myself going back to the hotel in that state and I thought that, going to a police station, I'd feel safer".

Mexican traffickers also smuggle drugs using vehicles crossing north through the San Diego port of entry, the AP said. US Customs and Border Patrol ( CBP ) has announced their largest ever seizure of the synthetic opioid drug fentanyl.

Witnesses described her as looking happy when she entered police headquarters, but distraught when she left and immediately accused the policemen of rape.

According to a report from LCI, Spanton left the court building without making a statement, while the officers were handcuffed in court to be prepared for processing.

The officers were also allowed to return home without submitting to a breathalyser test.

The daughter of a Toronto police officer, Spanton would later tell investigators, "I had had a lot to drink".

"All my life I've had good relationships with women".

Emily Spanton waived her right to anonymity to pursue the case. "I never raped this woman". They claim the woman consented to sexual interactions that night.
