A man identified as Andrew Lewis has been jailed for puncturing a condom before having sex with a woman as Judge calls it Rape.

The 47-year-old man used a pin to make a hole in the contraceptive to trick the victim on March 10, 2018, a court heard.

The Worcester Crown Court on October 2, however, sentence the train driver four years in prison after admitting r3pe at an earlier hearing.

Glyn Samuel, prosecuting, said the woman had found the pin and other pierced condoms in a bedside draw.

She checked the used condom in the bin and saw the hole. She described the act as ‘pure evil’ to police later that year.

Mr. Samuel said: “He told police he had hoped the condom would split and it would improve the intimacy.”

“He said it was the stupidest thing he has ever done. In piercing the condom beforehand there was a degree of planning involved.”

Mr. Samuel added there was little case law to help Judge Nicholas Cole with the sentence.

Lynette McClement, defending, said Lewis, from Worcester, wanted to enhance intimacy, not get the woman pregnant.

Ms. McClement said: “She had every right to choose her form of contraception. He had hoped it would tear, and as a result, she would change her mind. It is an unusual case.”

Sentencing him, Judge Cole said the woman had made it plain she did not want a baby.

She had given consent as long as Lewis wore the condom, so it had been a devious act.

The judge said: “It was a breach of trust. The offense of r3pe is so serious a custodial sentence is appropriate.”
