A rapist who boasted that he “wanted to sleep with 100 women” is appealing against his conviction.
The 24-year-old was an accommodation liaison officer at the University of Stirling.
Lawyers acting for Burns have now lodged an appeal against his conviction.
Jurors at the High Court in Livingston heard how his victim had returned to her flat after the attack and “Googled the definition of rape”.
Giving evidence from behind a screen, the woman told how Burns used his strength to have sex against her will in March 2016.
Speaking through tears at the High Court in Livingston, the victim said: “I always perceived rape to be more like with a stranger or with violence. I knew I’d said ‘no’ and he knew I was saying ‘no’.
“I had no doubts in my mind but I don’t think at the time I knew it was rape.”
She told the court she had liked Burns and started going back to his room, where he constantly pressured her to have sex but she constantly refused.
The woman, who was “shy” about relationships, repeatedly told him “no”.
Asked by defence counsel Mark Stewart if she was pressing Burns to have a relationship with her, she replied: “Sometimes he would say he wanted to sleep with 100 women and then he would commit to me.”
The jury heard evidence that the woman and another female, who also had sex with Burns, went to police with almost identical stories about how he had abused them before raping them.
Burns was found not guilty of a second charge of raping another woman.
He was originally charged with three counts of rape and six of assault.
Special defences were lodged claiming any sexual contact he had with the two women was with consent.
Burns also faced an allegation that he raped the other woman on March 23 last year.
The Crown withdrew the assault charges at the close of the prosecution’s evidence and he was acquitted of those charges.
His sentence was backdated to November 1 when he was found guilty.
Burns’ name has also been placed on the sex offenders register.
A date for Burns’ appeal at the Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh has still to be fixed.
Judge Lord Mulholland told Burns when passing sentence: “Despite making it plain to you that she did not want to have sexual intercourse with you, you ignored her wishes and used force to have sexual intercourse with her.
“That amounts to the crime of rape in Scotland.
“This court takes a very serious view of such criminal conduct.”
