The sentence follows an incident that occurred at around 7.00pm on Wednesday 19th February 2020 in which the 34 year old man forced entry to a property in Totteridge Road, High Wycombe and sexually assaulted a woman in her thirties.
The 34 year old man was arrested on Wednesday 19th February 2020 and charged on Thursday 20th February 2020. The conviction follows an instigation by Thames Valley Police.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Emily Sendall, of Slough CID, said: ‘This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim who has shown great strength and courage throughout the investigation.
I am pleased that [the 34 year old man] pleaded guilty and saved her the further trauma of having to relive the events in court.
I hope the significant sentence handed down shows that Thames Valley Police takes all reports of this nature seriously and work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice.‘
