A Cwmbran man has received a sentence of six years and six months in prison after being found guilty of the rape of a woman.
Jack Roberts, 21, appeared at Cardiff Crown Court on Friday 6 May where he was found guilty after trial.
Detective Constable Vicki Constance, the officer in the case, said:
“The victim in this case has shown remarkable bravery and resilience throughout the investigation and resulting court proceedings.
“We would not have been able to bring Jack Roberts before the courts to face justice without the testimony of his victim and I hope the outcome will be of some comfort to the victim.
“I also hope this outcome shows other victims of rape and sexual offences that they will be listened to, believed and respected.
“We take all allegations of sexual assault very seriously and if a report is made to us, our officers will investigate them thoroughly.
“I want to reassure anyone considering doing so that there is a whole range of support out there; not only from Gwent Police but from partner agencies who can help you through the entire process.
“There are support services available for victims of sexual abuse, both non-recent and current and for both adults and children. This help is also accessible to all genders.
“Sexual abuse can be reported to us via 101, or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
Roberts was sentenced to six years and six months in prison and will remain on the sex offenders register indefinitely.
