Romanian migrant raped woman in the UK days after release from prison in his home country – Telegraph.co.uk

Moraru had been sentenced to five years in prison in 2014 and was released early before moving to the UK. 

On New Year’s Eve he had kissed the woman in a nightclub and then began pestering her for sex. When she denied his advances he followed her. 

Sentencing, Judge Rupert Mayo said: “It was plain to anybody that she did not want your company.

“You waited, you were a minute behind her as you followed her into a churchyard.

“In the churchyard you brutally raped her and used your fists to smash her face in.”

Passers-by who heard her screams dialled 999 and Moraru’s DNA was found at the scene and he was arrested on January 6 at the car wash where he was working. 

A victim impact statement read to the court described the consequences of the attack on the woman. 

Nicola Moore, prosecuting, said: “She said that she felt responsible for what happened and felt physically sick when she thought about it.

“She indicated that she does not like to go out after dark and insists that she is accompanied.”

Moraru initially denied causing the injuries and said the sex was consensual, but later pleaded guilty to rape and causing actual bodily harm.

He was also made the subject of an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order and made to sign the sex offenders’ register for life.
