Prosecutor demands up to 18 years in jail from man who impregnated wife after anesthetizing her
A prosecutor demanded up to 18 years in jail for a man who had impregnated his wife after he anesthetized her in the Black Sea province of Trabzon, daily Habertürk reported on Jan. 28.
The suspect, 35, and his wife, 28, were married in 2016. A couple of months into their marriage, the couple started to argue. The woman began to suffer from psychological issues amid heavy domestic disagreements and started to see a psychologist.
While her treatment continued, her husband had told her about his desire to become a father. The woman then consulted her psychologist regarding her husband’s wishes but the psychologist advised her not to have a child until the end of her treatment.
The woman told her husband that her psychologist had advised her against having a child, but because she had refused his demands, the husband reportedly anesthetized her with medicated soda and raped her.
Three months later, the woman noticed she was pregnant and denounced him on charges of “sexual assault.” She filed for divorce.
Meanwhile, the suspect denied the allegations, saying they had had sexual intercourse with her consent.
The prosecutor in Trabzon demanded a jail term from 10.5 to 18 years.
Furthermore, the woman reportedly gave birth to the child but had a very risky pregnancy.
Another allegation against the suspect was revealed during the judiciary process. The suspect was reportedly sentenced three years and 9 months for molesting his sister-in-law.
