All I can say is "Ignorance must be Bliss" for the writers of this episode. Getting someone arrested because he used hypnosis to rape someone. You can not hypnotise someone to do anything, they don't want to do, it's as simple as that. If the Person say's yes twice, whilst they are in a relaxed state of mind, if they were to be in Hypnosis state, they would come out of it and be stopping the sexual activities. With all the Evidence and backup that the Defense had, the entire ending was wishful thinking combined with Ignorance, not understanding what Hypnosis is and what it isn't.
