Woman Woke Up After Night Out, Suspected She'd Been Raped - DNA Points To Husband

One woman went out partying alone one night after an argument with her husband. After a little too much to drink, she woke up in her own bed the next morning and felt something wasn't right.

She told her husband she thought she might have been sexually assaulted while she was out. He encouraged her to report it to authorities. After an investigation concluded she was raped, a DNA test led investigators to the culprit: her husband.

The 35-year-old man from the U.K. was arrested and is facing criminal charges after DNA tests show he allegedly raped his own wife while she was incapacitated. The woman had gone out drinking and couldn't remember much from the night before, but she had signs that she had been violated and she didn't know by whom.

According to the investigators, the husband got a call about his wife late at night when she was in a drunken stupor. He was asked to come and pick her up, which he did.

He brought her home, but instead of just putting her to bed, he forced himself on her while she was unconscious. Their children were sleeping in the next room.

"In your evidence to the court and in your interview with police, you said she was very drunk, barely coherent and had trouble talking," said the judge. "You drove her home and the inevitable conclusion of the jury was you then raped her while she was unable to consent, as a result of the alcohol she had consumed."

The husband was sentenced to seven years in jail for the offense and has to register as a sex offender for life. The judge also issued a restraining order against him and he's not allowed to contact his wife.

The victim told the court when she learned her husband was her rapist she felt utterly betrayed by the person she trusted most. "She described the total and utter shock upon finding out the person responsible was you, her husband," the judge said to the man while sentencing him. "Your marriage has broken down as a result and she had to move out of the home you shared together."

Many dismiss marital rape as though it weren't a real issue, but it happens. One woman's life came crashing down around her when her husband left his phone at home one day.

She went through it and found photos of him having sex with her while she was unconscious.

The woman had been suffering from exhaustion and poor sleep, and on a couple occasions she woke up with a bitter taste in her mouth, or a partially dissolved pill that she didn't remember taking. She discovered that her husband was drugging her and raping her while she was out.

When someone has sex with another person without their consent, it's sexual assault whether they have a marriage license or not.
