‘LOCK HIM UP!’

IN COURT, Rhona’s DE­TER­MINED TO PROVE BE­YOND DOUBT THAT PIERCE RAPED HER ON THEIR WED­DING NIGHT!

Soap World - - THIS MONTH -

Af­ter mus­ter­ing enough courage to ad­mit to the au­thor­i­ties, her fam­ily and friends that she was sex­u­ally as­saulted, Rhona has shaken off the ter­ror cam­paign or­ches­trated by her mother-in-law Martha to re­tract her claims against Pierce. She stand be­fore the judge and tells the whole har­row­ing truth of what hap­pened to her. Painfully re­count­ing how a wild-eyed and sex­u­ally ob­sessed Pierce called her a cheat­ing “slut” be­fore shov­ing her to the floor and rap­ing her amid shards of glass on their wed­ding night, Rhona stead­fastly main­tains that she kept deny­ing her hus­band con­sent.

Although the pros­e­cu­tion in­ter­ro­gates her about the huge time lapse be­fore re­port­ing the at­tack, her his­tory with drugs and her pre­mar­i­tal sex life, Rhona’s stead­fast in her de­fence. Pierce raped her! De­spite her con­fi­dence be­ing rocked by Vanessa’s rather dam­ag­ing wit­ness tes­ti­mony, Rhona stays brave as Pierce re­lates his ver­sion of events, spout­ing co­pi­ous lies to the court, main­tain­ing he and his wife had con­sen­sual mar­i­tal sex.

As clos­ing ar­gu­ments are fi­nally heard, Rhona knows that the ver­dict will come down to her ver­sion of events ver­sus her mon­strous hus­band’s. All she can hope for now is for the judge to be­lieve her and sen­tence Pierce to rot in prison!
