'Sunday Rapist' cries on stand

2012-08-29 19:37

Johannesburg - The alleged "Sunday Rapist" cried on Wednesday as he testified about his affairs with prostitutes.

"My marriage bed was special to me up to a point, after that not so much," Jaco Steyn told the South Gauteng High Court, sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court in Alberton.

Steyn was being cross-examined on sexual relations he said he had with a prostitute at his house on October 12 2011, the day teenager Louise de Waal was kidnapped and murdered

Steyn has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder, 11 of rape, 10 of sexual assault, 10 of kidnapping, one of attempted sexual assault, and one of attempted kidnapping.

Prosecutor Carina Coetzee asked why when he took other prostitutes to his house they only had sex in the living room, but on that day they also went to his bedroom.

Steyn started crying as he explained that his marriage had deteriorated since 2011. He removed his wedding picture and the Bibles next to the bed.

He said he still felt too guilty to have sex on his bed and they decided to leave.

This was when he took the prostitute to an abandoned holiday resort in Maropeng, the same area where De Waal's burned body was found, Steyn testified.

      He should have saved his tears for last, he will pick that soap up from the cell shower floor so often that he will know how to cry for real.

      I wonder if he enjoyed the tears of his victims? Did he feel powerful as they pleaded with him to stop? Cry you dweeb, cry!

    Married, with a girlfriend on the side who knew all about his evil acts. What is happening with her. She is an accessory to murder. Why are the courts not investigating her FFS

    Boo-hoo that is typically European now..cry to get pity for your disgusting crimes.Zuma probably had something to do with him crying.The government must provide him with a shoulder to cry on or he is crying for labour disputes.Hang him..he is one of those who want death penalty reinstated anyway.

  • bless.boswell - 2012-08-30 09:01

    Yep, crocodile tears. They will never compare with the tears of the families of the girls whose lives he ruined - all because of an addiction.

  • rachael.vs.1 - 2012-08-30 10:43

    Lol! What the hell is he crying for? Eejit!
