An amateur boxer has been convicted of raping a teenage girl after she secretly recorded his confession on her mobile phone.
Rhys Roser, 24, was sentenced to seven years and eight months imprisonment for the “aggressive” sex attack on the 19-year-old in 2015.
Roser, of Maida Vale, denied wrongdoing when arrested but went on the run after hearing of the recording. He later pleaded guilty. Peter Clement, prosecuting, told Harrow crown court: “He made it plain he wanted to have sex and she didn’t. The defendant became more demanding and somewhat bullying of her.” The teenager then began the recording, which proved she had pleaded: “Leave me alone.”
After the rape Roser was recorded telling her: “You’re not going to stand up in court and tell everyone you were raped, way too embarrassing ... don’t f***ing tell anyone, it’s real simple.”
The victim said she had suffered depression, anxiety, insomnia and flashbacks
