Midwife Casey Harrison was arrested last month after a television crew showed up at her home and took her to court for allegedly having sex with a man on the set of a TV show.
The 41-year-old has been charged with aggravated indecent assault and has been suspended from her job at a midwife’s clinic.
Harrison has been married to the husband of one of her clients for six years.
But on Wednesday, Harrison was convicted in a civil trial of two counts of aggravated indecent and sexual assault on a person under 18 and one count of indecent assault.
She is due to be sentenced next month.
The court heard that Harrison and her husband, Michael Harrison, had been friends for about two years before the pair began having sex on a sofa on a Sunday night.
Harrison told police that she had not had sex with Michael Harrison since February.
She also told police she was unaware of Michael Harrison’s relationship with a female midwife and that she knew Michael Harrison was “not a typical husband”.
She said Michael Harrison did not want to have sex with her, saying “it was too risky”.
Michael Harrison said he had not been in contact with Harrison in months, but he did remember having sex when he and Harrison were married.
Prosecutors said Harrison’s behaviour on the television show was not consensual and it was a “troubling and disturbing episode” for Harrison.
The trial was adjourned to October 27.
Midwives ‘wanted to be friends’ Harrison and Michael Harrison had been married for about six years, but she and her family had not spoken for about a year.
She said she was “really confused” by her husband’s behaviour, and that it had been difficult for her to live without Michael Harrison.
“It has been difficult,” she told the court.
“The family and the extended family were upset about it and they wanted to be there for us, but we were not there.
We were not friends.
Michael Harrison was found guilty of the two counts.
He is due back in court on September 15.
