A Hong Kong man who raped his domestic helper and was exposed because the woman kept a sample of his semen as evidence was jailed for 11 years on Tuesday.
Sentencing Tsang Wai-sun, High Court Judge Mr Justice Patrick Li Hon-leung described his acts as despicable, saying the man took advantage of his position as an employer and let his sexual desire run free.
Tsang, 55, molested the 27-year-old helper on two occasions before raping her twice - all in the space of two weeks after the helper, referred to as X in court, started working at his home on December 10, 2017. The first sexual assault took place the day she arrived.
"You have violated the responsibility an employer is expected to have," Li said, adding that a long sentence was needed, because public abhorrence at the crime demanded a deterrent.
