A Halifax sailor has told a military court he woke up in his bunk to a superior performing oral sex on him while a navy destroyer was visiting Spain in The leading seaman was testifying Wednesday in Halifax at the standing court martial for Master Seaman Daniel Cooper, who is accused of sexual assault and ill treatment of a subordinate.
He said he drank a of beer throughout the day at a hotel and restaurant and later in the evening he and Cooper returned to the ship in a taxi.
He said the men had a few more drinks in the mess and eventually went to bed around 1 a. I'm in shock. I'm frozen stiff," he told the court. The man said it was dark and he couldn't really see, but the person performing the act was repeating a sexual phrase to him, and he recognized the voice to be that of Cooper, a naval communicator at Canadian Forces Base Halifax.
He became emotional in the courtroom as he spoke about fearing for his safety and attempting to alert a crew member in the bunk below him — but he said his pleas for help went unanswered. But he didn't believe me. His response was, 'You're drunk and I have duty in a few hours. Go back to bed,'" he said.
The junior sailor eventually told his alleged assaulter, "I'm not gay," to which he replied, "Oh, sorry," and left. The alleged victim said once Cooper left, the sailor in the bunk below him realized he had been telling the truth.
He said that sailor convinced him to report the sexual assault, and his superiors were notified of the alleged incident shortly after it happened. During cross-examination, defence lawyer Maj. Philippe-Luc Boutin appeared to suggest the oral sex was consensual. He asked the leading seaman if he remembered becoming aroused while speaking with Cooper near the bunks after they left the mess, and a discussion about sexual activity. Boutin also pointed to inconsistencies in his testimony.
He noted that he told the court Wednesday that he was "very drunk" when he went to bed early that morning, but told police days after the incident that he wasn't that drunk. Before dismissing the alleged victim, Military Judge Cmdr.
Sandra Sukstorf said, "Thank you for coming forward to tell your story.
