** TRIGGER WARNING **
THE STORY BELOW CONTAINS GRAPHIC DETAILS
In November 2017, a Wendouree man locked his intellectually-disabled girlfriend in a metal dog cage, made her eat dog faeces and chilli, made her perform sexual activities to his dog, threatened to slit her throat with a knife and burned her with a lighter.
He got sentenced to 2 years 8 months which equated to only 18 months non-parole!! Unfortunately, he’s getting out soon and his time in detention will end, unlike the ongoing suffering of his victim.
Apparently on one occasion, he ordered her to attach a car battery to her tongue but she refused. It’s reported he then grabbed her around the throat and choked her until she could not breathe before she agreed to follow his direction. He placed the charger on her tongue, causing an electric shock. Then he filmed his partner being attacked by the dog, locked in the cage and kept the material for his own enjoyment and humiliation of her.
If this makes you uncomfortable reading this, as it does to me, just think about his victim.
It completely baffles me that the sentence given was only 2 years and 8 months long but what’s more baffling is that his identity has been suppressed and therefore when he is roaming the streets and free to associate with adults and minors, no one will know who he is or what he is capable of.
Once again, protecting the rights of the perpetrator over the safety of the community. This is victim IN-justice and I won’t stand for it.
Let me know your thoughts.
