Giannini's legal team maintained that the sex was consensual.
His accuser testified in court that Giannini began raping her by his pool when she went to his house for a job interview.
"He pulled me down into the pool, put my forehead on the edge of the pool and got behind me and started raping me,” she told the court.
She testified that Giannini then led her upstairs and placed an American flag towel on his bed and continued raping her, the Commercial Appeal reported.
"He told me that was my job interview," she said. "I kept crying and saying that I wanted to go home. I started praying out loud."
