“It’s your lucky day”, Citi Financier’s words to his sex attack victim.
Brian Witty, 41, a former captain in the Parachute Regiment, is convicted in three rapes and a sexual assault over a 16-year period.
Despite being arrested after each of the first three alleged attacks, he was only charged after the fourth woman made a complaint against him.
None of his alleged victims had ever met each other, a court heard.
Questioned why four women had reported him to police, Witty told jurors: ‘I was a poor judge of character.’ He also claimed that his accusers ‘must have a screw loose’.
Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court in south London heard Witty had a ‘compulsive’ need for sex after only a few hours with women.
Jurors were told that when Witty was rebuffed by the first woman in 1995, he jumped out of bed and said: ‘But I’m a good looking bloke.’
He allegedly told Miss A, a nanny he met in the Slug and Lettuce, Fulham, that ‘No means yes’ when she refused his advances in his former flat in Kensington, even after she replied: ‘No definitely means no.’
After falling asleep with her clothes on, she claims she awoke to find Witty ‘painfully’ forcing her to have sex.
In 2006, the financier is alleged to have ‘forcefully’ sexually assaulted recruitment consultant Miss B in a Covent Garden alleyway after a drunken date arranged through the website datingdirect.com.
He had previously emailed the 25-year-old to say picking him was her ‘lucky day’ and promised her ‘all day laughter’. But the court heard she was in tears when she arrived home later that night.
