A 24-year-old man was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to rape at Ipswich Crown Court.

Adam Hassan, of Woodbridge Road, Rushmere St Andrew, was arrested in June last year after police received a report of rape from a 17-year-old girl.

The incident occurred at the YMCA in Wellington Street, Ipswich, on June 27, 2013. The girl met up with Mr Hassan at the property, where he took her to his room and forced her to commit a sexual act..

Hassan was arrested and subsequently charged. He pleaded guilty to rape and was sentenced to four years imprisonment. At the hearing he was also sentenced to six weeks for failure to appear after he did not answer bail for the offence. The two sentences will run consecutively.

  • If I was her father he would answer to me not a judge. A father would pass a more suitable sentence.

  • It seems very odd that you will allow people here to call for castration but will not allow any comment which calls generally for the re-introduction of punishments formerly used but now ceased. There is a thing called FREE SPEECH and it really is about time that our local MONOPOLY newspapers gave its readers that freedom. Just because you may have a soft attitude to crime it does not mean that it is the ONLY viewpoint you should use your newspapers to promote.

  • Looks like a standard kind of character for this day and age in Ipswich. Go into town bars, there you will spot similar characters propping up walls and watching women with no intent on spending any money. The joys of living in a Free For All society

In the Middle Ages Ipswich was not without schools, there is firm evidence of a grammar school as early as 1477 and probably as far back as 1399. This school received its Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and went through a number of guises before it became, what is now, Ipswich School. The school buildings are on Henley Road but have previously been in Foundation Street and Blackfriars Monastery.
