A 47-year old man has been jailed for rape after admitting that he punctured a condom before having sex with a woman.

Andrew Lewis used a pin to make a hole in the contraceptive to trick the victim on March 10, 2018, a court heard.

The train driver received a 4-year sentence at Worcester Crown Court on October 2 after admitting rape at an earlier hearing.

The court said that pin and pierced condoms were found by the woman in a drawer.

Glyn Samuel, prosecuting, said the woman also checked the used condom and saw the hole in it. In her complaint to the police, the woman described Lewis’ act as ‘pure evil’, reported Daily Mail.

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 offence of rape is so serious a custodial sentence is appropriate.”
