A Northampton man's starting a twelve year jail sentence for a rape which took place in 2015.
Franklyn Kehinde Coker who is 25, attacked a woman he found collapsed in the street in Bletchley.
Police say the woman was vulnerable and not able to defend herself.
“Due to the victim’s courage in coming forward and giving evidence, we were able to thoroughly investigate and ensure that this dangerous offender was brought to justice. The twelve-year prison sentence sends a strong message that violent and sexually motivated crimes will always be dealt with robustly by Thames Valley Police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts. Coker will now serve a significant amount of time behind bars."

Northamptonshire Police say a man who was found dead in the River Nene in Northampton was a double leg amputee.
Detectives are asking for the public to help identify the man who is possibly in his 50s or 60s.
Emergency services immediately cordoned off the area after a member of the public spotted the body at about 3pm (Monday 13th March) close to a sluice gate near the Avon headquarters in Nunn Mills Road.
Detectives hope this new unique information will help with their investigation.
"We can confirm tonight that the man found in tragic circumstances earlier was an amputee with both legs removed. He had a key in his pocket and was wearing a Six Nations rugby shirt so it’s possible he may have lived nearby and had been out watching the England game. Clearly, we are hoping that from this description, someone may know this gentleman as a neighbour or friend and get in touch. We are keeping an open mind, but at this stage there is nothing to indicate foul play."

An emergency night shelter in Northampton has helped more than 30 people in its first month.
The temporary accommodation and support services are being used by men aged 18 to 59 since it opened on the 6 February.
Since staying at the shelter, some have moved to supported housing and others have reconnected with family.
We opened the night shelter to help people move away from dangerous situations and that’s what’s happening.
Our aim is to help and encourage everyone who stays at the shelter to engage with services and take a leap of faith.
The key to the night shelter’s success is the fantastic team of volunteers who spend time talking to people about the support they need, and their hopes and fears.
