Who is Jon Dennis Gurney?
Jon Dennis Gurney faced Brisbane District Court on Monday on the first day of his trial on two counts of rape and one count of administering an unknown drug with the intent to commit a s*xual act.
Jurors are expected to hear from six witnesses about the woman’s interaction with Gurney over two weeks in October and November 2019, prosecutor Michael Andronicus said at the opening of it.
Jon Dennis Gurney allegedly raped a woman he met on Tinder. A court heard that he found a sticky note that said ‘sorry babe’
The single woman met Gurney on Tinder and communicated through the app for three to four days before they met on Oct. 28.
She says they “hit it off” and talked and kissed a couple of times before falling asleep in the same bed, Andronicus said.
Over the next few days, the couple met for drinks and had consensual s*x twice, with the woman giving Gurney a mobile phone when she said hers was broken or broken, the Crown told the court.
In return, he promised $350, but claimed he couldn’t access cash that day, Andronicus said.
‘Things got worse’ when the couple were drinking together on November 1.
The woman claims Gurney told her it was “fun time” when they got home, as he had put MDMA in her drink, the court heard.
She was left alone for about 20 minutes before finding Gurney at the bar.
“She remembered seeing that she was high-fiveing everyone and buying drinks for people,” Mr. Andronicus told the jury.
When the woman confronted him, Gurney pushed her against the bar and told her to fuck off, she said opening.
The single woman met Gurney on Tinder, communicating through the app for three or four days before they met on Oct. 28 last year, the court heard.
“He told her that he had been in a fight and to leave him alone,” the prosecutor added.
Andronicus said the couple agreed to have one last drink, which the woman says she said, before getting into an Uber.
The woman claims that Gurney told her it was “fun time” when they got home, since she had put MDMA in her drink.
At her home, he entered her bedroom saying that she was “going to pay” and that “nobody makes fun of me” before raping her, Mr. Andronicus told the court.
After Gurney left, the woman found “Sorry, babe” written on a sticky note.
The alleged rape was reported to police more than a week later when the woman went to Redcliffe Hospital.
At her home, he entered her bedroom saying she was “going to pay” and “nobody makes fun of me” before raping her, Mr Andronicus told the court.
In body camera footage played in court, the sobbing woman tells police Gurney said she “deserved it” when she yelled at him.
“He was screaming in pain,” she says.
The court was told that the messages between the two will form part of the evidence before the jury.
The trial before Judge Michael Rackemann continues.
