David Fish QC, for the defence, told the court it was a "sad day" for Evans.
"He is aged 23 and has, until now, had a promising career to which he has devoted his whole life since his teens," he said.
"That career has now been lost."
In mitigation, Mr Fish said Evans had not targeted the complainant and had come to the matter "very late".
