Women Discovers She Has Been Raped Whilst She Slept… By Her HUSBAND!

A man in his 30s from Newcastle has been jailed for 9 years for raping his wife whilst she slept.

The couple had known each other for over 10 years and he was fully aware that his wife was an extremely deep sleeper if she’d had a drink.

The victim only discovered the husbands horrible crimes against her when she looked at videos on his phone and saw herself being raped.

The court heard the videos varied in length from 30 seconds to two minutes and each showed a different occasion of the man raping or abusing his sleeping wife.  All videos have now been destroyed.

Newcastle Crown Court

The man pleaded guilty at Newcastle Crown Court to three counts of rape, one of assault by penetration, one of attempted rape and one of sexual assault and has been sentenced to 9 years in prison.

In a statement, the traumatised victim said her life had been left in tatters as she struggled to come to terms with what her husband had done.

She said: “In March 2017, I discovered my husband had been sexually abusing me.  Since that day, my life and that of our children has been completely turned upside down in ways I still cannot come to terms with.”
