Father who marched his son to the police says: "It was the right thing."


Jack Evans, 18, has been detained for two years

The father of a teenage rapist who gave up his son said he would "do the same thing again".

The teenager who forced herself on a girl was jailed after his parents forced him to confess when they found that he had texted his victim to apologize.

18-year-old top student Jack Evans almost escaped justice because of the sex attack because the student never complained.

His father Jonathan, 47, said to the mirror: "I would do the same thing again, I would have to do it because that is my moral stance, it is painful, but it is correct.

"You can't go on with your life if you live your life under a lie, as much as it hurts, it's the right thing to do."

Evans texted the victim two months later, and his horrified father Jonathan and stepmother Sarah Morris, 47, saw the news and told him to tell the police.

They marched him to a police station, where he told the officers his name and what he had done.

They tracked down his victim, who had been a virgin, who told them about the attack, and he was charged with rape.

She said she felt "worthless" and could no longer trust the men.

His father Jonathan said before the Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court: “I wanted him to tell the truth, he had to do the right thing and admit his guilt.

“It was difficult for all of us and gave rise to some arguments.

"I told him that it is best for him to show everyone that you are doing your best to correct what has happened.

"It was a shock to the system for him – I hope he has time to think in prison."

The court heard Evans' victim told him to stop at the last minute, but he continued during the attack last January.

At the time, he had been a first-rate student who had studied math, computers, and history at college.

Prosecutor Claire Pickthall said: "She didn't file a complaint, but two months later, Evans and his stepmother showed up at a police station to say what happened."

Evans from Pontypool, South Wales, was sentenced to two years in prison and sentenced to register as a sex offender.

He said: "It is extremely rare for someone to admit such a serious crime without a complaint."

But Judge Tracey Lloyd-Clarke said there were aggravating properties and Evans had to be locked up.

She said to him, “Two months after the rape, you apologized to your victim and said you understood why she was upset.

"But this text caught your father and mother's eye, who brought you to a police station.

"You told an officer your name and said you had sex with the young woman."

He was sent to a juvenile delinquent institute for two years after receiving a discount for his age and confession of guilt.

It is believed that he is currently in the Parc Young Offenders & # 39; Institution in Bridgend, which is located in the HMP Parc with a capacity of up to 1,300.

His father Jonathan wants him to come to his software development company when it is released next year.
