Young Rape Victim Angry At Sentence

A young rape victim said yesterday she felt like a fraud after her attacker left an appeal court with a suspended sentence.
Speaking at her suburban flat, the woman, 22, said her life had been turned upside-down after chef David Leslie Sims, 36, entered her home and raped her on November 30 last year.
She said she was disappointed and angry when the Court of Appeal, in a split decision yesterday, dismissed a prosecution appeal against the suspended sentence Sims received for the rape.
"I care about rehabilitation, it's for the good of society ... but, Jesus Christ, it's (rape) not a petty crime, "she said. "I wish he would have been punished accordingly and by not doing so, it somehow makes me feel like what happened isn 't really looked upon as being that serious".
In April this year, Sims, formerly of St Kilda, was given a susupended jail sentence of two years and nine months, after pleading guilty in the County court to two rape charges, one count of indecent assault and one of aggravated burglary.
Judge Tony Duckett said in sentencing that Sims, after drinking beer and taking marijuana and ecstasy, saw the woman asleep in her lounge room. Sims opened the door to her flat and raped her orally and digitally. The woman fought to stay calm and polite, while asking him to leave. Sims left the flat and was later found asleep, and intoxicated.
Judge Duckett said in April that Sims pleaded guilty to the charges, showed remorse and had good rehabilitation prospects. Describing the offences as serious, Judge Duckett said Sims' actions were a spontaneous response to an unusual situation and his inhibitions were reduced by his alcohol and substance abuse.
He took account of Sims' reputation as a hard-working and responsible person in suspending the jail sentence.
Yesterday, in the Court of Appeal, justice Geoffrey Eames said the woman must have been terrified, and displayed considerable fortitude as she endeavoured not to show fear. But he and justice Frank Vincent dismissed the appeal by the Office of Public Prosecutions.
Justice Eames said a suspended sentence did not mean an offender had not been punished. He said Sims had to live with his admission that he was a rapist, and had spent 38 days in custody.
Justice John Batt said in a dissenting Judgement that the sentence fixed was lenient and he would have ordered immediate imprisonment.
Yesterday the woman said she had not left her home for a week after the attack and eventually quit her job. She felt vulnerable and had withdrawn from some of her friends after being raped. "I feel like now I've probably suffered more than he has," she said.
