A man in the UK received a 4-year jail sentence on rape charges after he poked a hole in a condom without telling his partner.
Andrew Lewis, a 47-year-old train driver, had earlier admitted to rape prior to his sentencing.
“It was a breach of trust," the Worcester Crown Court said. "The offense of rape is so serious a custodial sentence is appropriate.”
The woman had made it clear to Lewis that she did not want a baby, but Lewis said he was hoping to change her mind, according to prosecutors.
The woman later called Lewis' actions “pure evil" when speaking to police.
“He told police he had hoped the condom would split and it would improve the intimacy," prosecutor Glyn Samuel said. He said it was the stupidest thing he has ever done. In piercing the condom beforehand there was a degree of planning involved.”
According to prosecutors, the man’s partner discovered Lewis' deception after finding pins and similarly tampered with condoms in a bedside drawer in March 2018. The woman checked the used condom and found the hole.
