Lyonel Manurewa Te Pou Taniwha
The appellant was convicted of six counts involving physical and sexual violence against the complainant, with whom he was in a brief relationship. The Crown alleged that soon after the relationship began, the appellant began to act in a possessive and controlling way towards the complainant and later became abusive and violent towards her. Two particular incidents are relevant to the appeal. The first incident relates to two counts of rape of which the appellant was convicted, arising out of events on Christmas Day 2012. During the evening, while the complainant was at the appellant’s house, the appellant demanded that she have sex with him. When the complainant refused, the appellant raped her, putting a dirty towel in her mouth to stop her protestations. He raped her a second time shortly afterwards.
