Burton man jailed for eight years after admitting rape

A Burton man has been jailed for eight years after admitting three counts of rape.

Braden Rae, aged 44, was jailed at Wolverhampton Crown Court on June 11 after admitting three counts of rape in Burton-on-Trent.

The court heard that Rae, a former gym instructor in Burton who is now living in Derby, raped his victim twice in 2014, and also in 2015.

The woman later confided in a friend before making a report to police officers.

Rae, now of Lace Maker’s Close, Borrowash, Derby, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.
