A man who was allegedly raped by his daughter’s boyfriend after a row over the birth of her child says the sex was consensual.
Key points:David Williams was allegedly assaulted by his ex-wife’s boyfriend and his daughter during a row in the pastThe father said the incident was “absolutely normal”David Williams, a father of four, said his daughter was a “real slut” but that she was “a lot younger than her age”The 33-year-old was allegedly attacked in his own home in January when his ex, 23-year‑old Tarek, began sexually assaulting her during a argument.
Tarek pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault.
During the argument, David Williams was also allegedly punched and kicked.
Taring had claimed that David Williams, who has a wife and two daughters, assaulted her and that she later told him he had raped her.
The pair then moved into separate rooms and began banging and kissing each other, he told police.
But after a week of the attacks, David and Taree moved to a different room.
When David Williams went back to his own room to sleep, he was attacked again by Tareek, he said.
“She [Taree] then grabbed me and pulled me towards her so she could take off her shirt and underwear and I could see she was naked,” he said in a statement.
“I was pushed down onto the floor, and she grabbed my hand and pulled it towards her.”
After several minutes, Tareeks face was pressed against the floor.
“It was a really traumatic and upsetting experience, I was crying and she was asking me to stop,” he told ABC radio.
“As I lay there, she put her hand down my pants and she said, ‘do you want to be raped?'”‘
It was an absolutely normal thing’Mr Williams said he did not remember what happened next.
“The next thing I know, I had a bloody nose and my hair was on fire, I lost consciousness, I couldn’t even tell where I was,” he recalled.
“A friend of mine from work called me and asked me if I was okay, I said, no I’m fine, I woke up and I was in hospital.
I just had nightmares for two weeks.”‘
It’s been a very long time since I’ve felt this way’David Williams said his life had been “completely changed” since the incident.
“At first, I just thought it was some kind of a joke,” he added.
“But then my family, my wife, and my children just started to talk to me about it, and it became a lot clearer.”‘
She’s not a monster’Mr Taring said that he had been told that she “took it too far”.
“She’s definitely not a serial rapist,” he explained.
“When we first met, she was very shy and I think that maybe it took a while to get used to her.”
We didn’t have a long-term relationship, so we had to work on our communication and understanding and how to behave around each other.
“After a while, she started to understand how to be more friendly and I noticed that she’s not as afraid of me as I thought she was.”‘
My wife was just trying to protect me’Tareek’s lawyer told the court she “felt her life had completely changed”.
“There was a lot of anger and hurt, but also a lot hope that things were going to be OK, that everything was going to get back to normal,” she said.
Tariee’s lawyer also said she was relieved that her client had been spared jail.
“That’s something she will never forget,” she told the jury.
“My wife felt her life was completely destroyed, she’s never been happier, she feels very lucky.”
David Williams’ defence barrister said that the mother of his three children “did not need to see her children suffer”.
“David had no reason to believe that Tareez was a paedophile or was violent towards her,” he noted.
“He was completely innocent of the crime of sexual abuse.”‘
Tale of a broken marriage’David said he would be “a great father” to his children, but that he would now focus on “the fact that she doesn’t deserve to be a paedo”.
“The truth is, I have two beautiful daughters who have grown up and are now adults and I’m a father to them, so they have a whole new world, a whole different perspective on everything,” he revealed.
“And it will be my biggest priority going forward.”
