Man who raped woman in Bridport is told he will face long prison sentence

First published in News

A MAN has been told he faces a ‘significant period of imprisonment’ after admitting raping a woman with Aspergers syndrome in Bridport.

Mustafa Mustafa, of East Street, Bridport, admitted raping the 21-year-old woman in the town shortly after midnight on August 14.

Speaking through a Bulgarian interpreter, 24-year-old Mustafa pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared at Dorchester Crown Court.

Tim Shorter, representing Mustafa, told the court that the defendant was a man of previous good character and asked for the case to be adjourned for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.

Judge Roger Jarvis responded: “It is plain that in a case like this there will be a significant period of imprisonment by way of punishment.

“But I’m prepared to put the case out for a pre-sentence report to see if there is anything within it that will assist me in determining the length.”

Mustafa was remanded in custody and will return to court for his sentence hearing on November 23. He was automatically placed on the sex offenders’ register.
