Clacton: Man Jailed For Rape

A man has been jailed for five years for a rape in Clacton.

44-year-old Stuart McPherson, of St Osyth Road in the town, was found guilty after the trial at Chelmsford Court Court.

A 50-year-old woman was assaulted in a flat on 13 February 2013.

Investigating officer, Rachel Evemy said: "The judge in his summing up described the victim as having great restraint, dignity and style in giving her evidence.

"She did it in open court without special measures and was extremely brave.

"I would like to praise her for her courage, and hope this serves as a message to other victims out there that they can feel confident in reporting what has happened to them to police and we will give them all the support they need through the court process."
