A man has been jailed for nine years after being found guilty of raping a 15-year-old girl in Hinckley in 2019.
Kristian Jackson, 28, of Ashby Road, Hinckley was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court on Monday 12 April.
He was also issued with a sexual harm prevention order, a restraining order and will be placed on the sex offenders register.
On the evening of 26 October 2019, Jackson was looking after the victim at his home address. He gave her alcohol and she became so intoxicated that she was sick.
