A 31 year-old man from Portsmouth has been sentenced to 4 years in prison after a woman reported she was raped at her address in Waterlooville.
Jack Thomas Heasman of Byron Road in Buckland admitted to raping a 22 year-old woman at the victim’s home on Saturday 15 November 2020.
After pleading guilty at Winchester Crown Court on Friday 13 October, he was sentenced to 4 years imprisonment and was also ordered to sign the sex offenders register for life.
DS Harry Wilson said “I hope that this result reassures our community that we take these allegations very seriously, and that this behaviour will not be tolerated.
“We would like to commend the victim for her bravery throughout the investigation and to thank her for having the courage to report this to us.
We will relentlessly pursue offenders to secure justice for their victims and want to reassure anyone who reports incidents of serious sexual assault and rape to us that they will be believed”.
Anyone who has been the victim of sexual assault should report this to us by calling 101 or visiting our website. Always dial 999 if a crime is in progress.
