Former Aspatria man jailed for six years for rape charges

A former Aspatria man has been sentenced to six years in prison at Carlisle Crown Court today.

Jonathan David Robinson, 25, originally from Aspatria, was sentenced for sexual assault, actual bodily harm and attempted rape.

Robinson was convicted in September 2012 for sex assault and causing actual bodily harm by repeatedly punching the victim.

However, at the time the jury were unable to agree on a verdict for the rape. On December 12 2012, Robinson pleaded guilty to attempted rape.

DC Mark Cox said: “This has been a drawn out process for the victim, who shown incredible courage.

"Our thanks go to the Crown Prosecution Service who never gave up on securing a conviction for Robinson.

“The victim in this case is an inspiration to many, she endured a traumatic attack and was still able to find the courage to speak to the police about what she had been through."
