10 years for rape of ex-partner
A MAN who raped his ex-partner while on bail for another sex attack on her has been jailed for 10 years.
Ryan Graham, 27, assaulted the woman, who later took her own life, at a house in Irvine in March this year.
He had been granted bail on the condition he did not go near her when he subjected her to a violent rape.
The 34-year-old victim took her own life amid the police investigation, but a letter with details of the attack was discovered in her home.
After a trial at the High Court in Glasgow, Graham from Ayrshire was convicted of a sexual assault on March 8 and rape on March 10, while on bail.
Judge Sean Murphy QC jailed Graham – who is now on the sex offenders’ register – for 10 years for the “appalling” offences.
