A rapist described by police as "a dangerous individual" has been jailed for seven years. 

Scott Morgan, 25, of Recorder Road in Norwich, was jailed after pleading guilty to two counts of rape. 

The sentencing follows an incident on March 13 2023 when the victim had been on a night out with Morgan and a group of friends. 

Morgan, the victim and a friend returned to Morgan’s home late that night to continue socialising. 

While the victim was in the bathroom, Morgan asked the other friend to leave his home so he could be alone with the victim.

Morgan then raped the victim on two separate occasions. 

The victim fled the property and got help from police once they were home. 

Morgan was arrested a short while later on suspicion of rape and taken to Wymondham Police Station for questioning. 

He was bailed and later charged. 

At Norwich Crown Court on Monday, Morgan was sentenced to seven years in prison and three years on extended licence. 

He has also been placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.

Investigating officer, detective sergeant Lawrence Oakes, said: “Norfolk Police are committed to supporting victims of sexual offences and bringing offenders to justice. 

“Morgan is a dangerous individual who, thanks to the bravery and courage of the victim, no longer poses a threat to the community in Norwich. 

“No sentence will ever heal the trauma Morgan has inflicted on his victim however, I do sincerely hope that the closure of this case will be another stage in their healing process."
