On the night of the 11th October 2019 my 17 year old sister at the time, Shannon was brutally raped multiple times for over 45 minutes by her best friends dad.
the night of the 11th Shannon was invited to her friends house along with a few other friends for some drinks, so a bottle of wine and a few other alcoholic drinks later my sister got very drunk so her best-friend put her to bed. While she was in bed the dad of the best friend gave his daughter and Shannon’s friends money and told them to go to McDonald’s which from his house it is about 35/40 min walk which resulted in him having my unconscious sister alone in his house.
Shannon was asleep in her best friends bed and very drunk to the point she couldn’t really walk by her self. The dad came into the best friends room woke her up by undressing her then picked her up out of bed, put his arms under her arms and carried her into his room where he raped her multiple times for over 45 minutes.
she struggled to get up and leave because of how numb and how in shock she was and how he was pinning her down but managed to leave the room when he went to the toilet and got herself out of the house and she didn’t stop walking, she was hysterical and wouldn’t stop screaming and crying while trying to call everyone on her contacts untill her friend answered the phone and got straight out off of bed and into her car to pick her up and called the police. she struggled so hard to get him off of her that she snapped her acrylic nails off, had bruises all over her thighs, arms, wrists and ankles where he was grabbing her and taking control of her. She had bite marks over her neck, his DNA was found inside of her and her nails were found under his bed. He then got arrested and let out 48 hours later a few weeks went by and he broke his bail conditions by contacting my sister trying to intimidate her saying “she may as well tell the truth because he has cctv” she reported it straight to the officer dealing with the case and he was arrested that day and was on remand for 6 months until court.
This has effected my sister in a very bad way after it happened she dropped out of college, tried to commit suicide, was very depressed and lost almost all of her friends, she can’t even remember the last time she slept through the whole night without having a nightmares and waking up crying, it has destroyed her and completely ruined her life, she hasn’t been the same and she never will be.
05/11/2020 - the verdict was that he got found not guilty on all 3 counts of rape and walked a free man with no criminal record for the RAPE and hasn’t been put on the sex offender register and their is no restraining order in place. He is free to walk the streets and re offend when ever he wants.
I’m asking everyone please can you sign this so we can appeal and my sister can get the justice and closure that she needs.❤️
