Woman ‘begged married man for sex so she could get pregnant and stay in UK’
A woman ‘begged’ a man to have sex with her in the hope of getting pregnant so she would be able to stay in the UK, a court has heard.
Jose Yampanya, 38, from Bristol, met the woman through a church and spent time with her while his wife and children were visiting the Congo.
Mr Yampanya claimed the woman threatened to cry rape if he didn’t succumb to her demands as she stripped down to her underwear, Bristol Crown Court heard.The woman allegedly cried ‘please Jose, help me’ before asking him to have unprotected sex with her.
When Mr Yampanya refused, she screamed.
The 38-year-old has been charged with attempted rape, which he denies.
The court heard that on the Saturday before the alleged rape, he was at the woman’s home when she tried to instigate intimacy with him.
He said: ‘She was forcing me to sex. I wanted sex with a condom. She didn’t want sex with a condom.
‘She was saying ‘If you don’t do it I will call the pastor to tell him you want to make love with me by force, or I’ll call the police’.’
The following Monday, he had taken her to the post office so she could collect her benefit money before they returned home.He told the jury: ‘She was in her room. She had only her underwear and bra on. She was sitting on the bed.’
Yampanya said the woman kicked the door shut and they kissed and embraced, moving to the floor.
‘It was clear she was asking me if I could get her pregnant with a child that would support her immigration.’
When Yampanya told her he would leave unless they had protected sex, the woman pleaded with him to help her.
Police arrived at the house after a neighbour heard screams and alerted them.
