A Kettering man who filmed himself raping a woman has been given an eight-and-a-half year jail sentence.

Louis Ejoh, of Gloucester Close, Kettering, appeared at Northampton Crown Court after he pleaded guilty to two counts of rape.

The court heard that Ejoh, aged 25, forced the woman to perform a sex act on him and filmed it on his mobile phone.

Stephen Lowne, prosecuting, said he then forced the woman to have sexual intercourse with him.

Mr Lowne said the footage showed that Ejoh threatened the woman with violence if she did not do what he told her.

His honour Judge Timothy Smith said the filming of the rape was a “seriously aggravating feature” of the crime.

The court heard that Ejoh entered a guilty plea to two charges of rape shortly before a trial was due to begin.

Judge Smith sentenced Ejoh to eight-and-a-half years in jail. He will serve half in prison before being released on licence.

He was also ordered to complete an eight-week suspended sentence he received for an offence he was convicted of in March.

He will be on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.
