A teenage rapist who imposed himself on a girl was imprisoned after his parents forced him to confess when they discovered that he had texted his victim to say sorry.
Restaurant worker Jack Evans, 18, almost escaped justice for the sexual assault because the women never complained.
But when he apologized to her by text two months later, his dismayed father Jonathan and his stepmother saw the message and told him to tell the police.
Jack Evans, 18, had escaped justice for the rape, but when his parents found a text saying he was sorry to his victim, they took him to the police station to confess.
They took him to a police station where he told the police his name and what he had done.
They found his victim, who was a virgin, who told them about the attack, and he was charged with rape.
Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court learned that she told him to stop at the last minute, but he continued.
Prosecutor Claire Pickthall said, “She did not file a complaint, but two months later Evans and her mother-in-law arrived at the police station to report what had happened. “
Jack Evans’ father Jonathan told his son to tell the truth and go to the officers to tell them what he had done
The victim, who was a virgin, said she felt “worthless” and unable to trust the men again.
Evans, from Pontypool, south Wales, was imprisoned for two years and sentenced to register as a sex offender.
He was watched by Deniz Stewart, his biological mother, whom he said he loved during his descent.
Justice Tracey Lloyd-Clarke said there were aggravating traits and Evans should be locked up.
Evans’ mother Deniz Stewart was in court to see her son’s case after he confessed to his crime
She said to him, “Two months after the rape, you apologized to your victim and said that you understand why she was upset.
“But this text came to the attention of your father and mother who took you to the police station.
“You said your name to an officer and you said you were going to sleep with the young woman. “
His father Jonathan Evans, 47, said outside the court, “I wanted him to tell the truth, he had to do the right thing and admit his guilt.”
