Man Punctured Condom With Pin Before Sex; Gets 4 Years In Jail
London: A 47-year-old man who had sex with a woman with a punctured condom has been convicted and jailed. The court, during a hearing, was informed that Andrew Lewis, 47, made a hole in the condom with a pin to trick the victim on March 10, 2018.
Worcester Crown Court awarded Lewis, a professional train driver, a four-year sentence on October 2.
The court said that the woman found pierced condoms and a pin in a drawer. Prosecutor Glyn Samuel said the woman also checked the used condom and saw the hole in it. The woman described Lewis’ act as ‘pure evil’ in her complaint to the police, reported Daily Mail.
“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 was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
Samuel said that there was not much case law to help Judge Nicholas Cole with the sentence.
Samuel’s lawyer Lynette McClement said that his client only wanted to enhance intimacy and was not interested in getting the woman pregnant.
“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,” McClement said.
Judge Cole, while announcing the verdict, said the woman with whom Lewis had sex had made clear that she did not want a baby. The judge said: “It was a breach of trust. The offence of rape is so serious a custodial sentence is appropriate.”
