Modelling company boss Dawie de Villiers has been found guilty of rape, sexual assault, sexual grooming, exposure to child porn, fraud, and access to child pornography.

Modelling company boss Dawie de Villiers has been found guilty of rape, sexual assault, sexual grooming, exposure to child porn, fraud, and access to child pornography.  Judge Cassim Moosa read out the judgment on Wednesday afternoon in the High Court in Johannesburg. He recounted the testimony of a young woman, who was 15 years old in 2011 when she was allegedly raped by Modelling South Africa PTY (Ltd) founder De Villiers, eNCA reports. The victim now 21, had told the court that she was dressed in a bra, bikini bottoms and skirt when De Villiers put his hand on her leg and started kissing her before he allegedly overpowered her and raped her.

The woman said she felt like a prostitute and felt “disgusted” with herself.

Another model alleged that of De Villiers touched her and sent her inappropriate messages.

During the trial in 2015, The Citizen reported De Villiers ex-wife had testified she'd found explicit photos of women on his computer.

“I found them in March 2009. Some of the photos showed the female half naked, some were very explicit, and there were some where she was completely naked,” she told the court.

When she confronted her husband, he responded, “I am not going to listen to lies from such a s**t and w***e … she says I forced her to pose like that? Wow… I will murder that s**t believe me.”

The matter was postponed to March 8 for sentencing procedures.
