Mokhtari repeatedly raped the woman over six hours at a Keysborough motel room and threatened to beat her if she screamed, the judge said.

Prior to the horrific attack, Mokhtari smoked methylamphetamine and during the assaults became paranoid and spoke to the victim of an animal outside the window.

He also made ‘car noises’, the judge said.

‘The victim was alone and isolated. You created a situation and manipulated it in a way to force yourself upon her when your sexual advances were rebuffed,’ he said.

‘You knew she was your prisoner, you threatened her, she pleaded with you not to rape her.’

At one point the woman begged for Mokhtari to kill her, Judge Johns said.

‘In the bathroom she stated, ‘You are raping me, if you are going to kill me, kill me now because I cannot stand this,’ he said.

‘At no point did you respond to her pleas,’ the judge added.

The 42-year-old was jailed for 11 years, with a non-parole period of seven years, and will be listed as a registered sex offender for 15 years.
