A WOMAN who was drugged and raped by her own half-brother when she was a teenager was left devastated as her dad and step-mum supported the rapist in court.
The unnamed woman says her half brother plied her with drugs and booze, then raped her while she was unconscious at his Australian home in 2005.
At the time, the victim was just 14-years-old[/caption]
The rapist, who cannot be named for risk of exposing his victim was supported by his parents – the girl’s father and step mother as he appeared at Brisbane Supreme Court.
The court heard how the then 14-year-old had been invited to a “party” at her half brother’s house, but when she arrived the only other person there was his housemate.
Her half brother gave her marijuana and alcohol, eventually causing her to pass out.
He then raped her, twice, while she was unconscious.
The victim says she woke up with a severe pain in her vagina and stomach and was naked aside from a t shirt.
Her brother was masturbating beside her as she woke up.
The sick abuser then forced her to perform a sex act on him before sending her off with £16 for the morning after pill.
The court heard how the rapist had even called his older sister and told her he was concerned that the then 14-year-old could be pregnant.
He insisted that his younger sibling had asked him “to teach her how to have sex”.
Two years after the attack the teenager gathered the courage to tell police about her half-brother’s crimes.
However, she was forced to withdraw the allegations by her dad, who was attending the court in support of her rapist as he was sentenced.
The half-brother was convicted by a jury of undressing and raping his then 14-year-old sister two times.
He was slapped with an eight year term as his parents were left distraught.

Now a father of six, the rapist had also been on trial for four other charges which included a rape, two indecent dealings with a child and supplying dangerous drugs to a minor – but was found not guilty.
Sentencing the man, Justice Douglas said: “Her life has been affected significantly, she has anger issues, mental health problems and for a very long time she had no sense of self-worth.
“She is worried about not being the mother she could have been because of the demons you left her with.”
