Carlisle assault victim speaks out – BBC News
Cap도박e Town – A Cape Town lawyer is defending the wife of a violent rape victim who was brutally assaulted by her ex-boyfriend and then jailed.
Karen Hodge was not in court for the sentencing, but her defence counsel, David James, said that the defence “doesn’t feel that sentence should take place” and that her husband’s defence would seek to change the date of sentencing, which was postponed last night.
Karen Hodge said during the hearing that her husband was not sexually aggressive towards her and that she was subjected to “the most degrading things she has ever endured”.
She said that while she was sexually assaulted, her husband was never “sexually aggressive” towards her and that she had not reported the abuse at the time.
According to testimony, on the morning of 28 January 2007, she went to pick up her car outside her home in the city’s North End.
Mr James also told the court the defendant said: “Karen, you’re being a bit rude. We can’t see anything. We’re not supposed to see it… It’s your own fault.”
When the car arrived at a gas station in the city, police said the defendant pun나비야 마사지ched and kicked her repeatedly and her mother called the police.
She left and returned and her mother confronted her, but Hodge was unable to walk her across the street because of bruises to her neck and shoulders.
She told the court that her ex-boyfriend kicked her but it was then she told her mother how she had been attacked and the family were driven home.
When she arrived home, she found her husband sitting on the couch and her arm, and a knife in her possession. Hodge was also raped when they drove home.
She also alleged the defendant had threatened to kill her husband if she told anyone about the assault and that the couple had become separated.
The court heard Hodge told the court she was in “an uncontrollable rage” because she was abused and she had “never been attacked like this”.
The defendant was convicted of aggravated battery, but he was given life sentences.
The prosecution said the offenm카지노ce would be dealt with with the full weight of the law.
Speaking outside court Hodge said: “My partner raped me and he was not ever interested in getting it over with because it was such an enormous pain in the ass.
