Police sergeant jailed for 10 years for raping drunk woman
The Independent says a police sergeant has been jailed for 10 years for raping a “paralytic” woman who went on to give birth to his child.
Ben Lister was found guilty of sexually assaulting and raping the woman while they were staying at the same house after a night out in 2016.
Prosecutors said the 36-year-old, an officer with West Yorkshire Police, dragged the “very drunk” woman off a sofa while she was asleep before touching her sexually as she drifted in and out of consciousness.
Sentencing Lister at Bradford Crown Court, Judge Jonathan Rose said he had contacted the woman the next day, “testing the waters to see if you had got away with having sexual intercourse with a comatose woman”.
