A Norwich man has been jailed for three years for rape - thanks to forensic evidence.
Andrew Walker, 27, of Newbegin Road, was sentenced to a total of 40 months in prison and placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life.
Walker was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court today after previously pleading guilty to the two counts of rape.
The incident took place in Norwich in May 2010 when the victim, aged in her 20s, had been for a night out with friends. She reported the attack to police and agreed to a medical examination.
As part of the investigation DNA evidence was obtained which assisted detectives to build a case against Walker who was finally charged with the two counts.
