A MAN has been jailed for raping a woman.

Police said Isaac Amponsah was found unanimously guilty by a jury of oral rape at a property in Worthing in November 2018.

At Hove Crown Court, the 41-year-old was sentenced to four years in prison and handed a restraining order preventing him from any future contact with the victim.

Amponsah, of Strand Parade, Goring, will also be placed on the sex offender’s register for life.

Investigating Officer Amber Evans said: “I hope the outcome of this case will provide reassurance to the public that reports of sexual offences are investigated diligently and tirelessly.

“I also hope it will give other victims of sexual offences the confidence to make a report to the police.

“The victim in this case has shown incredible bravery, not only in reporting this matter but in supporting the investigation and prosecution over an extended period of time.

“She gave evidence in court and should be proud of the key part she played in bringing Amponsah to justice.

“Hopefully the conviction and sentence will offer some level of comfort to the victim and will prevent Amponsah from committing any such crime in the future.

“Importantly, once he is released from prison, he will remain on the sex offender’s register indefinitely, affording long-term protection to other women.”
