- 12 April 2013
- From the section York & North Yorkshire
A man who claimed he had no memory of raping a woman because he had taken pills and alcohol has been jailed.
Keith Poole, 51, was his victim's guest when he attacked her while she was making up the spare room for him, Teesside Crown Court heard.
He said he was sorry for her ordeal, but had been mixing anti-depressants and alcohol and could not remember.
Poole, of Lumley Street, Loftus, admitted rape and was jailed for three and a half years.
He was also put on the sex offenders register for life after the attack in March 2012.
