Only one night I think Froggy.

"Gene Charles Bristow, 54, stood trial in Adelaide's District Court charged with aggravated kidnapping, rape and indecent assault.

The court heard he held the 24-year-old woman captive in an old pig shed on his farm at Meningie for two days.

The jury took three hours to find him guilty of all charges."

From the ABC, it was 2 days, which probably meant 2 days, 1 night.

Appealing the use of evidence

A South Australian man who kidnapped and raped a European backpacker in a pig shed on his regional property has questioned the use of some evidence at his trial as he seeks to appeal his conviction.
Gene Charles Bristow held the 24-year-old woman for two days after he answered a Gumtree advertisement she posted in search of farm work in 2017.
After being found guilty of aggravated kidnapping, rape and indecent assault, he was jailed for 18 years with a non-parole period of 12 years and six months.

But in arguing his appeal on Monday, defence counsel Paul Charman questioned the use of some of the evidence during the trial, including details of how the woman had managed to release herself from her chains and subsequently use her computer to send messages for help.
