Rapist jailed for string of ‘horrific’ attacks in Boston


A rapist who carried out a series of horrific assaults in Boston has been jailed.

Tomas Vaiciunas, 36, of no fixed address, was jailed for 13 years on December 1 after being found guilty of two counts of rape and four counts of common assault following a five-day trial at Lincoln Crown Court.

He was charged on June 9 this year, after the victim reported his offences to the police.

Detective Constable Kerry-Anne Kinroy, of Boston CID, said: “The crimes committed by this offender were horrific and resulted in the victim feeling helpless, isolated and withdrawn.

“I hope that this sentence allows the victim to begin to rebuild her confidence and get her life back.

“We hope that this case will give people the courage to know that they can come forward and report this type of crime.

“We will always believe the victim and support the victim throughout the process. This type of offence will not be tolerated.”
