It was a harrowing discovery for the young woman from Leicestershire,UK.

In Nov 2013, Sarah Tetley, 26, woke up to find her husband, Charlie, molesting her. 

He left for work leaving Mrs Tetley confused and shaken. 

"I woke up in the morning in that sort of drowsy just waking up stage and realised that he was molesting me in my sleep," Mrs Tetley told ITV’s This Morning.

"At the time I thought I'll just pretend I'm still asleep and see what's going on. He stopped pretty quickly and I left the bedroom and went downstairs and sat up watching some rubbish on telly."

Confiding about the incident with her neighbour, Mrs Tetley was told to call the police. 

Through investigations, police managed to find 316 videos on Mr Tetley's computer. 

Sarah was only given permission to watch the videos - which police warned were sickening - the following March.

"A couple of the videos I watched you couldn't hear me be breathing and I didn't really appear to be moving at all. I did look like I was dead in some of them," she said.

Household objects

"A lot of the videos weren’t just of him but of household objects and things he would decide to do with those. It was quite disturbing."

The videos revealed that the sexual abuse had been going on for two years.

During the TV interview, Mrs Tetley dismissed the possibility of being drugged saying at no time did she feel "odd". 

"In the morning I might wake up with a dead arm… but nothing that made me think something untoward was going on," she said.

Charlie Tetley was sentenced to 12 years in jail in August last year, after pleading guilty to 26 counts of rape and assault.

"If in anyway you're being abused you should tell someone... whatever kind of abuse it is," said Mrs Tetley.

"And especially if people are secretive. It might be nothing but it might also be something quite big."
