Noel Bertrand is charged with sexually assaulting a woman he had met at an airport bar in April.
Bertrand's lawyer said in closing arguments Thursday that the woman had rough, consensual sex with Bertrand, then regretted it.
The woman testified this week that after having drinks, the two moved to a concourse, where he attacked her after she refused a kiss. She told jurors she didn't scream because she was being choked.
Two airline mechanics intervened.
According to the Denver Post, Bertrand testified that the woman had shown him a note saying she wasn't wearing panties, and the two kissed for 20 minutes before having sex.
