A man walked free from court after he admitted stabbing his girlfriend with a knife – when a SEX GAME went wrong.
Randy Daniel Butchers, 21, and his partner used the blade to spice up their steamy role-playing romps.
But the kinky game backfired on the adventurous couple, when Butchers got too caught up in the moment – and stabbed his girlfriend in the leg.
His amorous actions caused his girlfriend to scream in pain and she was described as ”extremely distressed”.
Butchers’ barrister told Swindon Crown Court today that his client had misunderstood the ”parameters” of their dangerous sex game.
He was given a one-year probation order after pleading guilty to actual bodily harm.
Judge Douglas Field, sentencing Butchers, told him: ”The facts of this case are extremely unusual.
”You did have a weapon, namely this knife, and you used the knife in a way that caused injury to your partner.
”But it appears that this was some sort of sex game that had gone wrong and you were under the reasonable understanding that she was consenting.
”The injury itself is not that serious.
”You pleaded guilty at the first opportunity and you have never been in trouble before.”
The court heard the couple – described as being in a relationship for a ”little while” – had waved the knife around during previous sex sessions.
But on June 24 this year – at the height of passion on midsummer’s day – the blade was used it to cut her leg.
Colin Meeke, prosecuting, said: ”It is clear from her statement and acknowledged by him that some aspects of their sex life would be described by many as unusual.
”A knife had been waved about in role play but never in fact used. There had been some discussion about the knife but equally they had set firm parameters.
”During the day in question during intercourse she describes him drawing the knife down her body and then into her leg.
”She was extremely distressed and screaming and not in a little pain.
”He completely misunderstood and misinterpreted the parameters of what he was or was not permitted to do.”
The matter was reported to the police and when Butchers was questioned he told them about their sex life.
But he recieved just a probation order after the court concluded the injury was caused in the misguided belief that the complainant was consenting.
Alex Daymond, defending Butchers, said: ”What needs to be addressed is this defendant’s outlook to sexual behaviour in these circumstances.”
