He was sentenced to 13 years imprisonment and ordered to undergo five years post-release supervision by Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy on 25 July 2016.

He lost an appeal against the severity of his sentence in the Court of Appeal on Monday where Justice John Hedigan described the offence as “one of the most serious cases of rape” to have come before the three-judge court.

Giving judgment, Justice Hedigan said Hussey had placed his hand over the woman’s mouth to stop her from screaming and struck her on the face cutting her lip. He repeatedly told her his “boss” was making him do this to her and that if she kept screaming, three more men would rape her.

(Shelby County Sheriff's Office). A Tennessee man is behind bars after he allegedly broke into a woman ’ s home twice , raped her , before breaking in a third time to wait for her in bed after she went to the hospital, police say.

She was undressed and was left covered with a duvet. She described “waiting for death” after Hussey had gone home.

He had been popular in the local community, well adjusted, had a good employment history and was heavily involved in sporting activities.

One of three expert reports found Hussey to have a somewhat exceptional or abnormal level of sexual preoccupation. He watched hardcore pornography on an extensive basis and, on at least one occasion, had gone to a prostitute.

His barrister, Michael Bowman SC, submitted that sentences of 13 years were usually reserved for offenders who commit large numbers of sexual offences over protracted periods of time.

Bowman accepted that it was difficult to find an adjective to describe the assaults but “simply because the offence was so offensive, doesn’t mean you take a separate approach to sentencing”.

He said the DPP had provided a list of single-instant rapes to the Court of Appeal which involved similar sentences to Hussey but they all involved fully contested trials by offenders with significant and relevant previous convictions, in his submission.

Counsel for the DPP, Patrick Gageby SC, said the facts of the case were “terrible”.

He said Hussey subjected the victim to an ordeal which “even in the long history of the Central Criminal Court, does stand out. Unfortunately, this young gentleman has to suffer the consequences of that,” Gageby said.

What was particular about this case was the “constellation of aggravation” and the judge had made it very clear that the effect on the victim was “extraordinary,” Gageby said.

Justice Hedigan said it was scarcely possible to imagine the woman’s terror.

It is truly the stuff of nightmares.

As was clear from the victim impact statement, the psychological consequences have been “devastating” on her.

Justice Hedigan, along with President of the Court of Appeal Justice George Birmingham and Mr Justice John Edwards, said the sentencing judge had identified a headline sentence (16-18 years) and allowed a five-year reduction from the outer end of that for the mitigating factors which seemed appropriate given the valuable guilty plea.

It was a “severe sentence” but not one that fell outside the range available to the sentencing judge and the appeal was therefore dismissed.

Wearing a grey suit and tie, Hussey made no reaction when the judgment was delivered.
