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."
