The trial of a former One Nation staffer accused of assaulting and raping a woman in Brisbane's south more than a decade ago continues in Brisbane on Tuesday.
Sean Black, former media adviser to ex-Senator Malcolm Roberts, pleaded not guilty on Monday in the Brisbane District Court to three counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count of rape.
During his opening remarks, crown prosecutor Brendan White told the court Black had violently attacked the woman twice between March and October of 2007.
Doctors will testify the woman was left with bruises and soft tissue injuries from the assaults, Mr White said.
He told the jury following the first two assaults Black raped the woman in late October 2007 after he noticed her bruises and she told him not to hit her.
She approached him around a month later about the assaults and Black allegedly struck her in the stomach and threatened to kill her before breaking her phone.
The jury is expected to hear from three doctors this week, as well as a friend of the woman whom she approached for support in 2017.
