Associated Image

 

A man has been jailed for nine and half years after admiting to the rape of a woman in Penzance in 2008.

 

Lee Hosking, aged 28 from Penzance, appeared at Truro Crown Court on Monday 27 January 2014, and pleaded guilty to rape.

 

This conviction relates to an offence that occurred in Penzance on 5 May 2008.

 

Detective Inspector Stuart Ellis said: “Lee Hosking has pleaded guilty to an exceptionally violent rape.

 

“Every case of rape is treated with the utmost seriousness. Unsolved cases are regularly reviewed by detectives to ensure that, where possible, any offenders are identified and arrested.

 

“Since 2008, the victim of this terrible offence has had to live with its devastating effects and will inevitably have to continue to do so. Every aspect of her life, her relationships, her career and her health have been irrevocably damaged since she was attacked.

 

“I hope that it will be at least some small comfort to her that Lee Hosking has finally been brought to justice.”
