Hero police officer James Stuart McMillan (above) comes to the Downing district court on Wednesday where he is accused of sexually abusing a woman in 2017
A hero police officer who saved the lives of three people is said to have raped a woman just hours after receiving a prowess for his efforts.
James Stuart McMillan was recognized by the NSW police because he risked his life to save the older trio from a house because it was filled with deadly carbon monoxide.
McMillan, a Senior Constable, traveled with his parents and wife to Sydney in February 2017 to stand on the podium during the award ceremony, where he would be a guest of honor.
Then Senior Constable McMillan and the woman returned to room 216 of the Ibis Hotel in Darling Harbor, where she claims that he raped her on the bed.
His parents were in the room next door, just a few meters away.
On the last day of the NSW District Court trial on Wednesday, the court heard that Senior Constable McMillan reportedly detained the woman and kept raping her while she told him to stop, stop and threaten to shout for help from his parents.

Senior Constable McMillan was arrested in November 2017 and accused of a single count of sexual intercourse without permission.
The court heard that the alleged victim did not initially report the alleged crime to the police.
Instead – during a later conversation with a friend of a police officer – she told how Senior Constable McMillan had held her during sex & # 39; on the night of February 24, 2017. At that time, she started crying.
The officer then informed her superior, who contacted the woman via Facebook to ask if she wanted to make a complaint.
In his final submission to the jury, Attorney General Craig Everson said it was incorrect to claim that she had not reported the incident, but the woman – who cannot be mentioned – had lied about the incident.
& # 39; The defense suggested that she had filed a false complaint … but we know it was the police who interfered with the allegation & # 39 ;, Everson said.
The court heard that on the night of the alleged violation, Senior Constable McMillan asked the woman if he could give her a massage while she was sitting on a bed in their room.
She initially refused before he persisted, and finally she gave in to his request.
While she was lying face down on the hotel bed, the policeman began rubbing her back before he allegedly moved his hand further down her body and pulled up her nightdress, the court heard.
When she tried to pull her clothes down, he reportedly grabbed her arm before she pulled her underwear to the side and forced his penis into her.
Everson told the victim's evidence earlier in the process in which she claimed she & # 39; cried & # 39; during the alleged attack by Senior Constable McMillan.
"She said," If you don't stop, I'll scream at your parents, "but he went on for 10 seconds before he stopped," Mr. Everson told the court.

He pointed to a series of text messages that the couple exchanged in the days and weeks after the attack, claiming that Senior Constable McMillan & # 39; recordings & # 39; had made.
McMillan: I'm sorry, I'm not alone after sex with you. I'm sorry for Friday night, I thought you were just molling and playing hard.
McMillan: When I kept doubting, I realized that you were serious.
Woman: You didn't ask questions, you completely ignored (me).
McMillan: I thought we were just wandering around. Yes, I did not confuse an excuse.
McMillan: I love you and I mistakenly thought you wanted to be intimate with me that night. We all had a great evening and I messed up.
In her final review at the jury, attorney Kellie Stares told the court that there were several reasons why Senior Constable McMillan should not be found guilty of assault.
After returning to the Ibis Hotel (photo), he is said to have given the woman a massage before sexually attacking her, even when she said: & # 39; If you don't stop, I call to your parents & # 39;
In his closing remarks on Wednesday, Attorney General Craig Everson (photo) said that the fact that the allegations were not reported for six months does not mean that the woman – who cannot be called – a & # 39; false complaint & # 39; had made
She said there was doubt among them as to whether the policeman's pen had invaded the woman's vagina.
Instead, Mrs. Stares submitted to the court that Senior Constable McMillan had touched her & # 39; only on the outside of the vagina & # 39 ;.
She also pointed to the evidence that the woman was in a sexual relationship with him for months after the alleged assault.
& # 39; This is inconsistent with how a real rape victim would act, & # 39; Stares told the court.
Ms. Stares said that during the entire trip to Sydney the woman & # 39; happy & # 39; was in the company of both Senior Constable McMillan and his parents.
Text messages between the couple who were exchanged on February 25, 2017 – less than 24 hours after the alleged assault – showed that the woman invited the policeman to her house.
& # 39; If you were sexually abused, for God's sake you wouldn't want them to come the next day & # 39 ;, Stares told the jury.

Mrs. Stares also told the court that the woman's complaint had developed & # 39; over time.
The court initially heard the woman tell that she was supposedly detained & # 39; before she finally made her statement to the police where she claimed to have been raped.
The court heard that the couple had exchanged nearly 19,000 text messages in the course of their relationship.
But Mrs. Stares told the court that when the relationship fell apart in mid-2017, Senior Constable ignored the woman's calls and texts.
The defense claimed that the police officer's lack of attention was one of many reasons that they might & # 39; lied & # 39; about the alleged assault.
Judge Sarah Huggett told the jury of seven men and five women that they will start their deliberations on Thursday morning.
Senior Constable McMillan has been suspended by NSW Police, while the case has remained in court.
