Victim of Met Police sexual predator says she wants him to spend 40 years in jail

The first victim of sexual predator police officer David Carrick to reveal her identity has said she wants him to spend the next 40 years behind bars.

Darciane Nunes Da Silva, 43, waived her anonymity in an interview with Sunday People as she believes there are more victims of the former Metropolitan Police officer who have yet to come forward.

Ms. Da Silva said that Carrick abused her while she was in a relationship with him.

She told the newspaper that he violently strangled and slapped her, controlled every part of her life, spied on her with hidden cameras and punished her when she didn’t obey him by releasing his snakes from their enclosure.

Carrick served as a Met official for 20 years before being unmasked as one of the country’s most prolific sex offenders.

The 48-year-old man was fired from the force for gross misconduct after admitting to 49 criminal charges, including 24 counts of rape against 12 women over an 18-year period.

He is due to be sentenced for the crimes at Southwark Crown Court on Monday.

Ms Da Silva said she doesn’t think Carrick can ever change.

“I would like him to have 40 years in jail,” he said.

“I think it would be fair because I know some of his victims lost 20 years because of what he did. He needs to be punished.

“I don’t think I can ever change and I’m worried that if he gets out he’s going to hurt someone else.

“But I hope by then he’s so old that he can’t.”

She said her abuse at the hands of Carrick left her “suicidal” and that she hopes her courage in speaking up will inspire other women to step up.

The Brazilian said she first met Carrick in a London pub after matching him on a dating app.

She initially described him as the perfect man. However, she said he soon became aggressive and violent, controlling her diet and bedtime, as well as forcing her to let him use handcuffs and sex toys on her.

“He knew how to manipulate me,” she told Sunday People.

“He was always threatening me and telling me: ‘I’m a police officer and I’m going to deport you if you don’t do what I want.'”

He added that on two occasions he released snakes on the floor to terrify her.

“Twice as punishment he released the snakes on our floor,” he said.

“He was on top of the couch yelling and yelling.”

Ms Da Silva left Carrick in July 2020 and later reported it to the police in March 2021.

She alleges that she withdrew her complaint after initially failing to gain support.

However, he said he reopened it a month later at the request of the police after being told another victim had come forward.
