A 37-year-old man from Alderley Edge has been jailed for seven and a half years after being found guilty of rape.
Daniel Exley of Beech Close appeared at Chester County Court on Friday, 6th May, charged with rape and assault by penetration.
Detective Constable Catherine Hudson, who led the investigation, said "Exley is a dangerous predator who took advantage of the woman at a time of vulnerability.
"The fact that he made his victim endure a trial and recount what he did to her was extremely distressing, but thanks to the bravery and courage that she has shown Exley is now behind bars.
"The sentence handed to him reflects the severity of his crimes and I hope that this conviction sends a clear message that Cheshire Constabulary takes all reports of sexual offences extremely seriously and will do all that we can to bring offenders to justice."
