Man accused of raping his pregnant partner while she was on all fours experiencing labour pains found not guilty.

The Sun reports the Hull Crown Court heard, the couple were in bed when the woman entered the “advanced stages” of labour around 11.30pm.

“The defendant fell asleep but she did not. The contractions continued as did her discomfort.” Prosecutor Michael Greenhalgh said.

“She was in bed, naked as she normally would be. In order to try and relieve the pressure and the pain of the contractions, she got onto all fours because she had been told that was a way of relieving the pain. She was in that position when the defendant woke up.

“He saw her naked on all fours and said, ‘I feel horny’, to which she replied, ‘Are you serious?’ The defendant then started having sex with her.”

Mr Greenhalgh said the man, in his 40s, did not listen to his partner’s protests.

“She made it clear to him that it was not something she wanted or something she was consenting to,” he said.

“How did she do that? Well, in the first place it was obvious, one might have thought, because she was crying in pain from the contractions, but she also told him to stop it and said to him, ‘please don’t.’

“The defendant didn’t listen to that and continued having sex with her.”

Mr Greenhalgh said, when the man had finished, he then “acted as if nothing had happened”.  “He even asked if she wanted him to run a bath for her.”

The man has been found not guilty.

  • What is wrong with the world. Why is it okay for him to have sex with her when she had said no? I just hope she is okay and the baby was born with no injuries.


  • Don’t see how he was found “Not Guilty’ unless the defendant had said that was the normal way she and her partner had sex.


  • This is so disgusting. How can someone be found not guilty? How can you even think that a woman having contractions and trying to relieve said contractions wants to have sex with you? This makes me feel so ill.


  • what sort of a judge says this is acceptable.. you have a woman in pain who can’t move or get away being raped saying NO … what part of no don’t means do what ever you want what sort of a message is this to send? asshole judge needs to be struck off


  • There really are some sick individuals out there, and yet again the justice system failing yet another person.


  • How does the court look themselves in the mirror or sleep at night knowing they’ve made a judgement like this?! Disgusting, infuriating and beyond disappointing, heads should roll for this! How DARE he?! What in the actual hell was that selfish bastard thinking?! I hope she gets herself and her baby as far away from him as possible.
    The author of this post also used the wrong wording for his crime – it’s not sex, its RAPE. He did not have sex with her, he RAPED this poor woman at one of the most stressful, vulnerable times of her life, at least give her the justice of calling it what it is.


  • No words! The legal system is really slipping. Some people just have no clue!


  • What a disgusting man and stupid court saying he wasn’t guilty. ????


  • That’s pretty poor lady


  • This is just weird. I hope she’s kicked him out.


  • What a horrible ordeal to have to go through especially prior to something as challenging as birth.


  • How terrible. I hope that she got that horrible person out of her life .


  • What was this sicko thinking!!


  • What an awful thing to do!!


  • OMG what a disgusting thing to do!
