A man who pierced holes in a condom before having sex with a woman has been jailed for rape. Andrew , 47, used a pin to make a hole in the contraceptive to trick the victim, a court heard.
The train driver received a four-year sentence after admitting rape at an earlier hearing. 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”.
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.”
Samuel added there was little case law to help the judge with the sentence. Lynette, defending, said the man wanted to enhance intimacy.
Ms Musa 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, the judge said the woman had given consent as long as Andrew 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.”
