Man hired to rape another man’s wife will spend 59 years in prison

U.S. & World

BAKERSFIELD, CA (KGET/KRON) – A man hired to rape another man’s wife will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Haliki Green Jr. is set to spend 59 years-to-life in prison, the District Attorney’s office said.

In March 2016, Green was hired by Russell Higgins to go to Higgins’ home and rape his wife.

According to court documents, the two men waited in her bedroom before ambushing her as she walked into her home.

She said they tied her up and forced her down on her bed, where Green her. She said she tried to struggle and bit her husband’s hand.

Her husband told her to allow the suspect to continue the assault, otherwise, it’d be bad for them, their children, and their grandchildren, the victim said. 

When the attack was over, she said her husband demanded she shower. The woman was smart enough to wet her hair in the sink in order to preserve the evidence, before calling for help.

Reports show she also took her husband’s phone which had rape, themed pornography, leading officers to believe Higgins acted out of sexual deviancy.

Green told detectives he’d heard of Higgins before he met him and said the talk was Higgins paid other men to have sex with his wife.

Green said that’s exactly what Higgins asked him to do-and offered him $200 to do it. Green maintained he thought it was all role play. 

The husband, Higgins, was found guilty earlier this year and is currently serving 53 years-to-life.
