A rapist who plied a young woman with methamphetamine before sexually assaulting her in his truck will remain behind bars after a court dismissed his bid to quash his conviction.
Jason Humphreys was two years ago jailed after a jury found him guilty of sexual intercourse without consent relating to an incident in Sydney’s west in 2019 when he forced the then-21-year-old into performing sexual acts against her will before leaving her stranded.
Humphreys was working as an interstate truck driver when he met his victim on a social media app in April 2019.
The woman agreed to meet him and he picked her up from near her home in Sydney’s inner west around 2am before they drove to an industrial estate at Eastern Creek.
In the rear cab of the truck he showed her how to smoke methamphetamine and they engaged in consensual sex.
He also sexually assaulted her despite her protests of “No, can you stop? Please stop” before he told her “All you women are the same. Youse are never satisfied”, the court heard during his sentencing.
He also grabbed her arms and pinned her to the ground so she could not move, during which she suffered bruising to her arms.
Following the assault and during a verbal argument, Humphreys told his victim to “f*** off” and kicked her out of the truck, telling her “I don’t give a f***. Make your own way home”.
She ran to a nearby business where she told a security guard “the truck driver, someone raped me” before police arrested Humphreys at the scene.
After a jury found him guilty of sexual intercourse without consent and assault occasioning actual bodily harm, he was sentenced to four years and three months in jail, with a three-year, two-month non-parole period.
He was also found not guilty of several counts of sexual intercourse without consent and one count of choking without consent.
Earlier this year he appeared before a hearing in the Court of Appeal.
He challenged his convictions on two grounds – relating to submissions made to the jury by the Crown prosecution in their closing address and the tender of a drug certificate.
However a bench of three justices dismissed the appeal.
