A St Clears man has been sentenced to four years in prison for one count of rape.
James Cole, aged 35, from St Clears, received a four year prison sentence for his crimes at Swansea Crown Court yesterday, Thursday (Jan 25).
He was charged with two counts of rape, which took place in December 2016, and was found guilty of one count, following a trial.
DS Andy Davies, of Carmarthen Joint Investigation Unit, said: “We welcome the sentence Cole has received for this despicable crime, which will have a lifelong impact on the victim.
“As a result of bringing this man to justice, it will help prevent further harm to other women.
“The victim of this incident has shown great courage in coming forward and in working with us to bring the case to court, where justice has been served.”
