Man jailed for Stoke-on-Trent rape

A Stoke-on-Trent man who filmed himself raping a woman has been jailed.

The city's crown court was told 22-year-old Aziz Khan, of Heron Street, Heron Cross, raped the woman in April 2017 and sent a 10-second Snapchat video of the attack to friends of the victim. 

He pleaded guilty to rape and disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress last Thursday (7 March).

He was sentenced today (12 March) for 11 years and two months.

Khan will also be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life. 

Detective Constable Ann Blairs, of the force’s CID North team, said: “This was a very serious offence and Khan will serve a prison sentence for what he has done. 

“I want to commend the victim for having the courage to come forward and have the confidence in us to bring this case before the courts. I also want to thank her family and friends for their support.”
