- An Adelaide doctor who repeatedly raped his wife while she was unconscious on sleeping pills has been jailed for 10 years.
Some photographs were of him using foreign objects during **** and ******l rapes, the court heard.
District Court Judge Marie Shaw today jailed the man for 10 years with a non-parole period of six years.
The doctor was found guilty of 13 counts of raping his wife in 2002 and 2003 and five counts of indecent assault around the same time.
The wife was "degraded in a most revolting way", Judge Shaw said.
"Your offending represents betrayal of the most absolute, complete and malevolent kind," she said.
The woman told the court she took various sleeping tablets, including the powerful drug Stilnox, while trying to combat chronic insomnia.
She testified she often woke up with bruises, which her husband blamed on "thrashing around" in her sleep.
The woman said that in late 2003, she noticed her husband had left the computer on, with the monitor switched off.
She turned the monitor on, and called police after finding a photograph of her asleep.
The doctor claimed his wife stage-managed the sexual encounters and told him to take photos of her while she pretended to sleep.
He told a jury it was his wife's fantasy to appear to be asleep while he performed sexual acts upon her, such as inserting objects including a wine bottle into her ****** and anus.
The doctor claimed the sex was consensual, and would be interrupted several times as he took the camera to a computer to download images.
"I have no confidence that you were telling the truth when you gave evidence," Judge Shaw said, describing his behaviour as predatory.
"You cold-bloodedly photographed what you did and methodically went about storing those photographs," Judge Shaw said.
