A LABOURER who raped a woman at her Chesham home as a child slept in the next door room has been jailed for five years.

Christopher Hines-Randall, 23, was today sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court for rape and actual bodily harm, which were committed in November 2008.

A jury found him guilty of the offences on August 23.

The judge said he has “a worrying history of violence” and the rape was aggravated by the fact a child was asleep in a next door room.

The court heard Hines-Randall, of Chalk Hill, Chesham, has no previous convictions, but has previously been cautioned by police.

His Honour Judge Moss sentenced him to five years in prison for rape, and nine months for ABH, to run concurrently.
