A man who pricked a hole in a condom in an "evil act" to "improve intimacy" without telling his lover has been jailed for rape.

Vile Andrew Lewis, 47, was caught out after his partner found a stash of other pierced condoms in a drawer.

Worcester Crown Court heard how the train driver used a pin to make a tiny hole in the contraceptive to trick his victim on March 10, 2018.

Lewis admitted rape and was handed a four-year sentence on October 2.

He said the devious act was “the stupidest thing he has ever done”.

Glyn Samuel, prosecuting, said the woman had found the pin, and other tampered condoms in a drawer next to the bed.

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, of Worcester, Worcs., wanted to enhance intimacy, not 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."
