Zara Phythian and Husband Victor Marke Accused of Repeated Sexual Abuse of a Minor

Dr. Strange star Zara Phythian and her husband Victor Marke are accused of repeatedly having sex with a 13-year-old girl after grooming her. The girl, who has now a major, told the court about the brutal experiences she suffered between 2005 and 2008.

Behind the Martial Arts Instructions…

A police interview with a woman was played to jurors at Nottingham Crown Court where the girl described details of the “repeated sexual offences” between 2005 and 2008. She alleged that Zara Phythian and Marke piled her with alcohol and repeatedly had sex with her.

The alleged incident took place before Zara Phythian, 36 and Victor Marke,59 were married. The two were Martial Arts instructors. Not only this, the girl, who back 13 years old back then, confessed that they also filmed some of the encounters.

She also narrated the first offence when Zara and Marke gave her alcohol and Ms Phythian dared her to give Mr Marke oral sex. Later, Marke would have sex with both of them. At times, Zara would ask her to play the game of “dare” and make her indulge in sexual activities with both of them.

In a heavy voice, the anonymous girl said that “I knew it was wrong but I just didn’t know how to get out of the situation or say anything. I remember trying to copy Zara’s reaction at the time because I looked up to her and tried to be like her in every way.”

The court was also told that Mr Marke was married to a woman called Juliet at the time when this abuse started. However, their marriage broke down after Mr Marke had an affair with Ms Phythian who herself was a teenager when she met Marke.

She is Not The Only One…

The Nottingham Crown Court was shaken at the horrific details bright forward by this girl after more than a decade. She stated that the abuse continued and Marke even threatened her to smash her kneecaps if she opened her mouth.

She confessed, “He just said nobody would believe me if I told them anyway. They always had power over me.” Phythian was 21 years old then and Marke was around 43. Well, she isn’t the only one.

Victor is also accused of additional charges of indecently assaulting a child concerning a complaint registered by another woman. It came out that the alleged woman was 15 years old when she was abused by Marke between 2002 and 2003.

Accident Man 2 star and her husband have denied all such allegations. The girl estimated that Marke raped her almost 20 times on different occasions. Apart from this, the couple is also charged with 14 allegations of sexual activity with a different woman who was a minor back then. They have denied all allegations. What do you think about this?
