Rapist, Hodijah Samuels attacked a woman the morning after their first date because he was too drunk to perform on their first night



The court has heard that a 30-year-old man named Hodja Samuels attacked a woman at the end of their first date in the morning because he was too drunk the night before and woke up feeling “horny”.

The rapist met his victim on a dating site in July last year and returned to his home, where some agreed sexual intercourse took place, but the couple did not have a full relationship because he “could not be aroused.”

The woman, who could not be identified, woke up the next morning from Samuels when he pressured her, but he told her he had to go to work.

Warwick Crown Court heard Samuels tell him: “Well, I’m a horn, we have sex” before being dragged under his pajamas, raped in his own bed.

The court heard how he ‘had his way with her’ at the woman’s house after he was unable to perform the night before because of the amount he had to drink.

The victim, who cannot be identified, woke up the next morning to find Samuels pressing himself against her and she insisted she did not want intercourse.

But Samuels told her: ‘Well I’m horny, and we’re having sex’ before proceeding to rape her in her own bed, giving her a sexually transmitted disease.

He later texts her apologising for his actions which he blamed on being ‘drunk and horny’ and wrote: ‘I was just being an idiot because I was drunk.’

Samuels, of Coventry, denied rape and claimed the woman had falsely accused him out of spite because she was annoyed about him texting other women.

But a jury found him guilty following a trial and he was jailed for eight years and three months at Warwick Crown Court on Friday.

Sentencing, Judge Barry Berlin said: ‘You have been found guilty on, in my opinion, overwhelming evidence.

‘She invited you to her home and some sexual activity took place but, for some reason, you did not have intercourse.

‘The next morning things changed. You decided that, with or without her consent, you were going to have sexual intercourse with her.

‘You forced her against her will, when she had made it perfectly clear she did not want sexual intercourse.

‘You ignored that, you pushed her onto the bed and forcibly raped her.

‘As a result of the rape she had a sexually transmitted disease, which brings this case into a higher category.

‘A further aggravating feature is that this occurred in her own home.’

Prosecutor Tim Harrington told the jury: ‘This defendant went on a date with a young lady.

‘They got on well and spent the night together, but they didn’t have intercourse.

‘In the morning she was going to go to work and didn’t want intercourse, but he took it anyway.

‘He had his way with her when she didn’t want it. He knew that, but cannot face that now.’

Mr Harrington told the court Samuels met his victim online and when they met up they visited some pubs before going to the home of a friend of hers.

Samuels then drove her home where they watched TV and had more to drink, and she agreed he could stay because he’d had too much to be able to drive.

Mr Harrington said: ‘They got into bed together and they kissed and touched each other.
