A man was arrested on a charge of rape after raping a woman who was sleeping over in his house while his fiancee was asleep in another room, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 29-year-old Daniel Howard of Darlington, has been sentenced to serve 7 years in prison after being found guilty of rape.
According to the police investigation, the victim went to bed in Howard’s house after a night of drinking with him and his fiancee.
The victim told the court that Howard forced himself on her, and warned her not to tell his fiancee. The next morning, the victim called a rape crisis hotline before checking herself into a hospital.
Howard denied the charge of rape, saying that he never had sex with the victim. Investigators found Howard’s DNA on the victim.
Howard claimed that his DNA ended up on the victim because she used an adult toy that belonged to his wife.
