Kelvin Jones was unanimously convicted by a jury who heard evidence that earlier in the evening the victim had sexual intercourse with a stranger in the nightclub. The defendant had noticed them going to the toilets together and kept his eye on the woman until closing time by which time her friends had left and she was too drunk to get into a taxi. Thinking she was ‘easy prey’ he bided his time and told others she was with him so he could get her into his car. He parked up at Embankment to rape her. She was incapable of consenting and had no memory of it. Mr Jones maintained at trial that she had made sexual advances to him but he was lying. Her Honour Judge Charles highlighted in sentence the vulnerability of the victim and the defendant’s planning and abuse of trust and sentenced him to 12 years imprisonment and prohibited him from working in security.
