MAN JAILED FOR MAKING WOMAN DANCE NAKED AFTER HORRIFIC SEXUAL ASSAULT

A Brit has been jailed for nine years today after raping and beating a woman in a jealousy-fuelled two-day ordeal at a Spanish apartment.

Dylan Rory Rogers, 28, sexually assaulted his girlfriend 23 and forced her to dance naked calling her his ‘slave’ after accusing her of looking at another man on the beach and saying he would punish her.

Prosecutors detailed the horrific Sado-masochistic treatment he subjected her to in an indictment released ahead of his trial today at a court in the Majorcan capital Palma.

They accused him of pepper-spraying her on one occasion and throwing eggs at her on another as well as making her dance naked for him and calling her “his slave” the day of the first rape.

On another occasion he was said to have changed her SIM card in her phone, leading to her losing all her contacts “so he could exert greater control over her” as part of the “situation of dominance he imposed on her through the abusive exercise of his authority and physical superiority.”

After forcing her to perform a sex act on him and raping her on August 7 last year, he stopped her from leaving the apartment the following morning and made her have sex again before physically attacking her.

“He blamed her for the damage he said she had caused him for ‘looking at the other man’ and said she would have to compensate him with the pain he was going to cause her,” prosecutors said in their indictment.

Describing how he penetrated his victim without a condom while he hit her and smashed her head against the wall and grabbed hold of her neck, they added: “He told her he didn’t care whether he had to kill her and covered her mouth with tape.”

Rogers, who has been held in prison since his arrest last August, was jailed for nine years after admitting to a crime of sexual assault and another of wounding.

Rogers, originally from the Ards Peninsula in Co Down, was described at the time of his arrest as a 6ft 2in ex-Ulster under-19 rugby player and former Bangor Grammar pupil.

A pal said after his detention: “Dylan went on a lads’ holiday about six summers ago and basically never came back.”

Prosecutors had been seeking a total sentence of 34 years – 15 each for two separate counts of sexual assault – before his courtroom confession which formed part of a plea bargain deal.

As well as the prison sentence, he was also ordered to do 80 days community service and given a restraining order lasting 21 years preventing him from going near his victim or trying to contact her.

Rogers was held by police after his victim managed to escape their eighth-floor apartment in S’Arenal, a holiday resort on the eastern end of the four mile-long Playa de Palma near the island airport, and alert a neighbor.

She is thought to have been naked and covered only with a towel when she fled the apartment as her convicted rapist showered.

Local press reports at the time said he lived in the party resort of Magaluf, although the prosecution indictment stated he had lived at the crime scene since April.

The sentencing court, Palma’s Audience Provincial, was told Rogers had a previous conviction for wounding.
