She threatened him, yet HE'S on trial? Sorry, if these were the only facts available, the prosecutor should have put HER on trial

Rape trial told of text threats

A woman who claims she was raped by her ex-boyfriend has admitted she sent him threatening text messages the day before the alleged attack.

The woman accepted she sent messages to the accused that were "threatening, abusive and sinister" and included a reference to bullets.

The accused, a 29-year-old Mayo man, has pleaded not guilty at the Central Criminal Court to rape and sexual assault of the woman in Mayo on January 9 and January 10, 2009.

He has also denied two charges of assault causing harm to the woman and false imprisonment on the same dates. The trial continues.
