Alleged rape victim gives evidence in court

A Donegal woman has told a Central Criminal Court jury that her ex-boyfriend raped her after he refused to leave their home because he wanted to discuss their reconciliation.

The woman said that after the attack the accused turned to her and said: “The next thing you are going to do is tell the child that his Daddy is a rapist.”

The accused has pleaded not guilty to raping the now 26-year-old woman on July 1, 2004.
