Man jailed over violent sexual assault

A Perth man has been jailed for more than nine years for violently sexually assaulting a woman in her own home as her four-year-old daughter slept in a nearby room.
James Alexander Nugent entered the home in May last year through an unlocked door after the woman's partner had left for work.
He slapped, punched and threatened her with a screwdriver during the attack.
Nugent entered pleas of guilty earlier this year.
In sentencing today, Judge Philip Eaton noted counsel did not agree on whether Nugent had threatened to rape the woman's daughter, as claimed by the prosecution.
But he said the attack would have been terrifying regardless.
"I accept in your case that your offending was spontaneous and that you were probably in the house, as I say, to commit a property offence rather than an offence of a sexual nature,'' Judge Eaton said.
"You did, however, employ sustained violence to achieve your ends.
"You employed threats and a weapon to achieve compliance with your demands and to overcome the complainant's physical and verbal resistance.''
Judge Eaton noted a psychological report that indicated Nugent was a high risk for reoffending sexually over the next five years.
But he also accepted that Nugent was remorseful.
Nugent was sentenced to nine years and six months jail for the sexual offences and other unrelated charges involving drugs and theft.
He will be eligible for parole after serving seven years and six months in prison.
The sentence will be backdated to September last year.
If you have experienced a sexual assault phone the Sexual Assault Resource Centre on 1800 199 888 for 24-hour emergency, information and counselling support.

Man jailed for home invasion rape

A 21-year-old man who sexually assaulted a woman as her daughter slept in the next room has been jailed for more than nine years.
James Alexander Nugent had invaded the woman’s home through an unlocked front door at about 5.30am on May 6, 2012, probably with the aim of stealing property from the Lynwood home, the District Court heard.
But after waking the female resident, who was still asleep in bed after her fiancee had left for work, he unleashed a violent sexual attack in which he repeatedly assaulted her and threatened to force her to have intercourse with him.
The court heard that during the attack he had slapped, punched and threatened the woman with a screwdriver as her four-year-old daughter slept in the next room. The victim, aged in her 20s, partially lost consciousness during the attack.
Judge Philip Eaton today said the attack appeared to be spontaneous while Nugent was trying to steal property, but the impact of the sustained violence and assault on the woman could not be underestimated.
The court heard Nugent had pleaded guilty and was remorseful and ashamed of his crime, at one point asking if he could write a letter of apology to his victim. Drugs had fuelled much of his offending, the court was told.
Nugent was handed a total of nine and a half years behind bars for the sexual assault and a string of other crimes including theft and fraud. He can apply for parole after serving seven and a half years.
