Man Gets 8 Years In Jail For Rape Of Partner

A man was sentenced yesterday for the violent rape of his de facto partner in August 2020.

The 47-year-old offender was found guilty and convicted for one count of rape of the victim who was his de facto partner and was between 17 and 20 years old at the time of the offence.

Upon the cessation of their de facto status, the offender invited the victim and took her back to his house where the offence took place.

On the consideration of the totality of the evidence, the court saw that the offender and perhaps the victim used some kind of intoxicant substance and at the point of the beginning of the offence, he may have not been in a proper mindset.
