Man who raped sleeping woman using victim’s phone filmed himself

A man who has filmed himself raping a sleeping woman using his victim’s own mobile phone has been told that it is clear that he has no respect for women. Cameron Hassan maintained his innocence when questioned by police and pleaded not guilty when he appeared in court – but dramatically changed his mind during his trial at Swansea Crown Court last month after a jury showed video of the sexual assault. Changed the petition.

The 31-year-old returned to court on Thursday to serve his sentence for the anal rape that took place in the Ammanford area of ​​Carmarthenshire in 2021. The court heard that he had 32 previous convictions for 92 offenses, including violence and harassment against women, but no sexual assault. Offensive.

Nicola Powell, appearing for prosecutors, read a statement from the victim in which she described the impact the sexual assault had on her, including depression and trust issues. The woman also said that she had gone through “hell” awaiting trial and wished the defendant had pleaded guilty to her for skipping that test.

Paul Hobson for Hassan stated that, although this was only a limited point in the mitigation, it was the case that Hassan had used the victim’s phone to record the attack and was never in a position to distribute the footage. He also pointed to a pre-sentence report written by a probation officer who had previously dealt with the defendant, detailing “well-founded concerns” about Hassan’s behavior, which he also said he regretted. expressed and had the potential to change. The barrister said guilty pleas in such cases were comparatively rare and though his client’s plea was late, it had spared his victim from giving evidence.

Judge Geraint Walters said he and the jury had to watch the video of the sexual assault and that it would be difficult for any right-thinking person. He said the footage shows the defendant has “no respect for women at all”, adding that it was hard to think of a more degrading way of treating a woman.

The judge said that after considering the issue of credit he was prepared to grant the defendant a remission of 5% on the sentence, otherwise he would impute as Hasan’s plea – although recorded during the trial – was made by the victim to give evidence. came before and was cross-examined. Hassan was sentenced to 10 years in prison without any fixed residency. He must spend two-thirds of that sentence in custody before he can apply for parole. He will remain a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.

Detective Inspector Melanie Howard, senior investigative officer for the Dyfed-Powis Police, said after the sentencing that the victim had shown great strength and determination during the investigation and trial. She said: “I appreciate their tremendous courage in coming forward and the perseverance shown during the investigation. We appreciate that it is not easy for anyone to do, but the victim has thanked the authorities for their support and sympathy in this matter.” We hope this case demonstrates that Dyfed-Powis police act on serious allegations of rape and sexual assault by officers who have worked tirelessly to bring justice to victims.”
