Sex slave site dating who is bebe winans dating
A WOMAN was raped, beaten and kept as an unpaid slave after meeting a man on Match.com, a court heard.
Colin Leacock, 34, allegedly forced the 37-year-old to give him oral sex at his home in St John's Wood, north west London after they met on the popular dating site in 2015.
When someone says online dating, one of the first sites that comes to mind is Ok Cupid.
It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.
Povall added: "She quickly became an unpaid skivvy, sleeping on the floor, required to clean and after a time soon the victim of repeated assaults.
"She was living in that flat in a state of fear, of depression, being bullied and controlled.
Colin Leacock, of Maida Vale, denies two counts of rape and two counts of assault occasioning ABH.
"There were occasions when she was grabbed by the hair and swung round so that chunks of her hair were pulled out.
"I haven't got proper emotions." But she was forced to leave the court after breaking down when she revealed she was "physically starved".
Jurors heard how Leacock threatened to throw her over a balcony. No means no, it means rape." Mr Povall said: "Her ordeal with that family continued until the beginning of May 2016 when she walked into a local shop and as a result of talking to on of the people who was working there she was sent on for medical help and the police became involved.' He added: "Mandy Leacock isn't in the dock, she has admitted to assaults on [the victim]." The prosecutor said the convictions do not "make Colin Leacock any more guilty than he would otherwise be".
Recognizing trouble signs is an important first step.
It is equally vital for individuals to value themselves and take action to avoid partners who try and maintain power or control over their time, body and actions.
Mandy forced the victim to move into a home in Maida Vale, where she was regularly assaulted and forced to "prove" she could cook and clean.
