According to testimony in the Victoria court, the incidents only ended after the woman recorded an attack on her iPad.
He began sexually assaulting her in 2002 when she was 19 — one year after she underwent gender realignment surgery, trying to kiss her and saying, “I just can’t help myself, you’ve become a beautiful woman.”
She managed to fight him off that time, but forced himself on her again while her mother was at church.
“I know you’ve wanted this since your operation,” he said.
She says the abuse “stole her life.”
After taking her virginity, he continuing abusing her and threatened to financially devastate the woman’s mom if she told anyone about the sexual attacks.
Talking to the Australian Press Association, prosecutor John Livitsanos said the stepfather continued making such threats every time he sexually assaulted her:
He would tell the complainant she was his second wife and she should be happy because not many men would want to be with a woman like her – referring to the fact that she was transgender.”
“She did not know how to make him stop.”
The stepfather forced himself on her three or four times a week, and last year decided he wanted to start filming the sex.
That’s what gave her the idea of filming his abuse on her iPad, but her stepfather figured out her plan, leading to a fight for the device that left the woman with bruised hands and head.
When his wife discovered what was going on, he said, “Your daughter wants it. She wants me to f*ck her.”
Later that day he was arrested, and initially claimed the incest only lasted six years, with around 30 incidents in all.
The woman’s brother read a statement in court that says her stepfather “stole my left and I feel watered down to the bone.”
