The man in his 30s was sentenced to 9 years in jail for rape, attempted rape, and sexual assault. The court heard that his wife was a heavy sleeper, particularly when she drank. A fact he took advantage of when he committed the crimes.
His vile acts were uncovered when his wife found videos of the crimes recorded on his phone. In a statement she says:
‘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.’
Court heard that the wife became suspicious when she found an app on her husband’s phone called Video Locker. On a day when he forgot his phone, she managed to access the videos, and what she found changed her life.
She immediately rang her husband and said: ‘ I have just watched videos of you raping me on your phone.’
The man handed himself over to police, was sentenced to 9 years in prison and will be placed on the Sex Offender’s Registry for life.
