Man, 47, who pricked a hole in a condom without telling his partner is jailed for rape

A MAN who pricked a hole in a condom without telling his partner has been jailed for rape after he was called “pure evil”.

Andrew Lewis, 47, said he punctured the contraceptive because he wanted sex to be “more intimate” with the woman.

He called the act the “stupidest thing he has ever done”, at Worcester Crown Court.

But the train driver was jailed for four years for the vile attack, in March 2018, after admitting rape at an earlier hearing.

Glyn 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" to police later that year.


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 did not want to 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."
