Rapist jailed for four years

A rapist who plied his victim with alcohol before attacking her has been jailed for four years and seven months.

Getu Begna, 42, of Retreat Place, Hackney, was sentenced on Friday.

In October last year his 26-year-old victim had been drinking with a friend in Islington and met Begna on her way home.

He gave her more alcohol before taking her back to his home and raping her.

Begna was arrested the following day after contacting the victim via a social networking site.
