Published 13/03/2014 | 20:37
It was the moment of truth in Carrigstown this evening, as Yvonne finds out the jury's verdict on her rape case.
At the very end of tonight's episode, we discovered that Martin Baxter was found guilty of raping Yvonne.
Earlier this year, viewers watched in horror as Yvonne, played by actress Ciara O'Callaghan, was raped by Martin, played by, Neill Fleming, who she met online.
The Rape Crisis Centre brought in extra volunteers to take calls after Yvonne's rape after the episode was aired.
After meeting for a drink at McCoy's pub, Yvonne says she wants to let loose and is seen later looking tipsy on her way back to her place with her date.
But after a few more glasses of wine, Yvonne realises she has drunk too much and asks Martin to leave, but he refuses to do so and starts kissing her.
The atmosphere takes a dark turn as Yvonne tries to push him off, telling him she "doesn't want to", but he forces himself on her and rapes her.
