A man who repeatedly raped his wife with household objects while she was unconscious has been sentenced 11 years in prison in Ireland . man Dublin (49 years old) was convicted of 11 counts of sexually assaulting his wife between January 2005 and September 2014.
Judge Paul Burns sentenced him to 12 years in prison, but suspended the final year on several conditions, including the man's participation in a course on sexuality and consent.
The horrified woman discovered that her husband raped her in her sleep more than 20 years ago after finding the “horrific images” on her computer. The attacks took place in the family home between January 2005 and September 2014. The 50-year-old woman said she did not know that her husband “practiced pornography,” let alone that he was using her to fulfill his “sick fantasies.”
She explained that after separating from her marriage, she suffered from anxiety, depression, insomnia, and panic attacks, in addition to being exposed to financial problems. Since this shocking discovery, she has claimed to have erased all memories of the man from her home. “But I cannot erase the pain, humiliation and indignity I suffered,” she said.
The woman added that she felt like she was married to a stranger who inflicted on her “the most horrific and violent abuse.” The jury convicted her husband of 11 counts of sexual assault by “vaginal penetration with various objects.” According to the state, the woman was unconscious and unable to give consent when her husband carried out the rapes.
An investigator told prosecutors that the abuse came to light when the woman discovered photos her husband had taken of her on his computer in March 2019. She asked him to leave the family home and filed a complaint. The couple has been married for more than 20 years and has children together.
