Sex at­tacker told woman that she was ‘easy to rape’

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE - STU­ART GREER

AMAN sex­u­ally as­saulted a woman then ac­cused her of be­ing ‘easy to rape’.

Andrew Evans kissed the woman and or­dered her to sit on his knee dur­ing the at­tack, mag­is­trates were told.

The 24-year-old, from Poyn­ton, had pres­sured her into giv­ing him a lift be­fore chang­ing the des­ti­na­tion mid-jour­ney to a se­cluded car park, the court heard. There the dad-of-one sub­jected his vic­tim to ‘ag­gres­sive ad­vances’ and only stopped when he got a text mes­sage from his girl­friend.

But in a cruel part­ing shot Evans told the woman ‘you have no idea how easy you are to rape’, a court heard.

At Stock­port mag­is­trates’ court, Evans, of Queensway, ad­mit­ted sex­ual as­sault.

He must now sign the Sex Of­fend­ers Regis­ter for the next five years and com­plete a 60-day sex of­fend­ers pro­gramme.

Kate Gaskell, pros­e­cut­ing, said: “Evans asked her for a lift.

“She re­luc­tantly agreed and was an­noyed at how in­sis­tent he was.

“As they were trav­el­ling, Evans asked to be taken to some­where else and di­rected her to an­other place. They ended up in a quiet se­cluded car park.

“He then be­gan to make ag­gres­sive ad­vances to­wards her.

“He tried to kiss her and reached around her with both arms.

“He then locked his lips on hers.

“She was lean­ing back against the win­dow.

“He asked her to sit on his knee and asked her why she was re­sist­ing her, telling her to ‘stop be­ing stupid’.”

The court heard that the vic­tim got out of the car when she saw an­other car ar­rive in the car park.

Ms Gaskell said: “She said she wanted to go home.

“Evans said he would let her if she sat on her knee.

“She got back into the car. He ag­gres­sively forced him­self on her.

“He then got a text mes­sage from his girl­friend.

“He said to her ‘you have no idea how easy you are to rape’. “They then drove back.” James Whar­bur­ton, de­fend­ing, said Evans’ ‘in­hi­bi­tions were not what they should have been’, adding: “He clearly mis­read the sit­u­a­tion.”

Evans, was also sen­tenced to 40 hours un­paid work, a re­strain­ing or­der ban­ning in from any con­tact with the vic­tim for three years and was told to pay £150 com­pen­sa­tion.
