He then undressed and raped her twice while she was unconscious
The girl woke up the next day with only a t-shirt and the brother masturbating, he then forced her to give him oral sex
The woman recalled feeling severe pain in her stomach and vagina but was still unaware of the rape until her brother gave her $20 to buy the morning after pill
The victim filed a report with the police two years later, but was forced to withdraw by her dad
The devastated woman, now 28, watched as her dad and step-mother chose to show support for her assailant in the Brisbane court
At sentencing the judge noted that the defendant, who is now a father-of-six, lacked remorse and had chosen instead, to go on trial
The unnamed woman says her older half brother plied her with drugs and booze, then raped her while she was unconscious at his Australian home in 2005. She was 14 at the time
A woman who was drugged and repeatedly raped by her own half-brother when she was a teenager was left devastated as her dad and step-mother chose to support the rapist in court.
The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was attacked by her half brother when she was just 14. He plied her with drugs and booze, then raped her while she was unconscious at his Australian home in 2005.
She had been invited to his Fraser Coast home to attend a ‘house party’ but when she got there she found just her brother and his housemate.
The woman, who is now 28, passed out after her brother plied her with marijuana and alcohol.
When she woke up the next day she was shocked to find herself naked aside from a t-shirt with her brother masturbating beside her.
The brother then forced his sister to perform oral sex on him.
A Brisbane Supreme Court jury convicted the man who was on trial accused of undressing and raping his then 14-year-old sister two times when she was asleep in their Fraser Coast home in 2005
The court heard how the woman recalled feeling severe pain in her stomach and vagina but was still unaware of the rape until her brother gave her $20 to buy the morning after pill.
The brother called his older sister expressing his concern that the sister may be pregnant and insisting that she had asked him to to ‘teach her how to have sex’ to prepare for her future partners.
The victim notified the police of the incident two years later but was forced to withdraw her allegations by her father.
After two-and-a-half-days of deliberation, the jury convicted the defendant, now a father-of-six, and who cannot be named to protect the victim’s identity, of undressing and raping his then 14-year-old sister two times.
However, the jury acquitted the defendant on four other charges which included a rape, two indecent dealings with a child and supplying dangerous drugs to a minor, as reported by NewsRegional.
He was sentenced to spend 8 years behind bars.
To the dismay of the complainant, her mother and stepfather were distraught as her assailant was taken away by corrections officers to commence his sentence.
The victim, now 28, passed out after her brother plied her with marijuana and alcohol. He then proceeded to undress and rape her multiple times. The sentencing judge took into consideration the fact that the man lacked remorse and had chosen instead, to go on trial
The rapist’s opportunistic nature, six children and the fact that he had not ’caused her any physical harm’ played a significant role in Justice Douglas’ ruling.
But the judge also took into consideration the fact that the man lacked remorse and had chosen to go on trial.
‘Her life has been affected significantly,’ Justice Douglas said. ‘She has anger issues, mental health problems and for a very long time she had no sense of self-worth.
‘She is worried about not being the mother she could have been because of the demons you left her with.’
The man will be able to apply for parole after serving two-thirds of his term.
