A teenager was jailed for raping a young woman after his parents drove him to a police station and made him confess to detectives.
Jack Evans, 18, initially got away with the rape attack because his victim never made a complaint.
But the takeaway restaurant worker, from Pontypool, South Wales, apologized to her by text two months later and his parents saw the message admitting his guilt.
They took him to a police station where he admitted raping the teenage student, a court heard.
She was later traced by police and told them she was paid by Evans, whose father said after the hearing that his son “had to do the right thing and admit his guilt”, which had “caused quite a few arguments”.
Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court heard Evans would have escaped justice but for his father and stepmother telling him to confess.
Evans persuaded the woman to have sex with him in January last year but she changed her mind at the last minute, the court heard.
He was sent to a Young Offenders’ Institute for two years after being given discount for his age and his guilty plea.
