Lee Brophy a Rapist who infected woman with hepatitis C is jailed indefinitely - 22nd July 2011

A sex attacker who gave a woman hepatitis C when he broke into her home and raped her was jailed indefinitely today.

Lee Brophy, 44, of Catford, south-east London, assaulted his victim, in her fifties, in March.

The victim was in bed when she woke to see drug addict Brophy standing over her with a 'triumphant' look on his face, the Old Bailey heard.

Brophy was armed with a knife when he broke in by removing a panel from the back door at her south London address.

He cut the telephone landline before the attack.

Brophy raped the woman twice before forcing her to have a bath to try to get rid of forensic evidence, but police were still able to recover DNA when she was examined.
