Woman ‘thought sex was with husband’


A Duntroon officer cadet has gone on trial accused of sexually assaulting a woman as she lay in the dark, waiting for her husband to come home.

The woman fell asleep on the couch of her Duntroon home, hoping her husband would return from a formal company dinner in the early hours of April 5 last year.

She woke in darkness to hear her front door opening, and the sound of footsteps making their way upstairs, to the home’s main bedroom, then back down to lounge room where she slept.

The man said nothing, but lay next to her, fondling and kissing her, before performing other sexual acts.

She assumed it was her husband, but soon doubt began to creep into her mind, the ACT Supreme Court heard on Monday

The woman said he looked like her husband, but that his hair didn’t feel right, she couldn’t see his tattoo, and the man wasn’t responding to her as her husband would have.

She says she asked “are you all right?”, and the man spoke for the first time, saying “yep”.

The Crown allege it then became firm in her mind that the man was not her husband.

The woman said “oh my god”, and she says she chased him out of the house.

The Crown say she turned on a light and allegedly saw cadet Paul Edward Buckley, 24, the husband of a friend who she had met a number of times at Duntroon.

The woman immediately called triple-0, and broke down as she told police she had been assaulted by a man she thought was her husband, but turned out to be Buckley.
