Littlehampton rapist jailed for series of historic sex offences
A rapist has been jailed for six years for a series of historic sex offences.
Mark Loten was found guilty at Lewes Crown Court of two indecent assaults and the rape of a woman known to him in 1991.
The 51-year-old, of Dorset Close, Littlehampton, was handed two years for the first assault, three years for the second and six years for rape.
All three sentences are to run concurrently.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: "This matter was only reported to us in 2012, but we carried out a thorough investigation and were able to help achieve justice for the victim even after all these years.
"It shows that we will always take such reports seriously no matter how long ago they happened.
“The victim was supported by ourselves and appropriate welfare and counselling through the case and her evidence was key in securing Loten's conviction."
