A 40-year-old man has been jailed for seven years after he was found guilty of rape.

Scott Onions, of Mollison Road, Meir, has also placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.

Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard that police had been called to Weston Road, Meir, early in the morning of 14 July following reports a man was forcing a woman to perform a sex act on him.

Onions was then arrested on suspicion of rape.

Onions admitted to smoking monkey dust with the woman but insisted that the woman consented to the act.

He was found guilty following a trial and sentenced at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court on Friday, 2 November.

Detective Constable Ann Blairs said: “This was a very serious offence and Onions will serve a prison sentence for what he has done.

“I’m grateful to the witness who alerted us to the offence taking place, as well as the bravery of the victim to come forward and have confidence in us to bring this case before the courts.”

Anyone who has suffered sexual abuse, or suspects others may be subject to sexual abuse, is urged to contact Staffordshire Police on 101.
