Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for rape and drug offences in Oxford.
Anthony Shirley, aged 30, of East Avenue, Oxford, was sentenced to four years and 10 months’ imprisonment in a hearing at Oxford Crown Court yesterday (7/3).
He pleaded guilty to one count of rape and one count of possession with intent to supply cannabis.
In June 2019, Shirley raped the female victim at a property in Oxford.
He was arrested on 5 June 2019 and charged on 25 November 2021.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Josie Cassidy, based at St Aldates police station, said: “Shirley took advantage of the victim in her own home where she should have been safe. I am pleased that he will now serve time in prison.
“Thames Valley Police takes rape and sexual assault offences seriously and will investigate robustly to bring offenders to justice.”
