Simon Morris - Simon Morris Jailed For Raping Teenager

British actor Simon Morris has been jailed for eight years for raping a teenage girl in 2011.

The 42 year old, who appeared in U.K. Tv series Hollyoaks and alongside Sir Michael Caine in crime drama Shiner, claimed to have no memory of assaulting the 15-year-old girl after getting her drunk at a house party in England.

He told Cardiff Crown Court in Wales he suffers from sleep disorder 'sexsomnia', where one engages in sex acts while asleep, but was found guilty of one count of rape and one count of assault by penetration in December (12).

On Monday (25Feb13), Morris was sentenced to eight years behind bars and ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Judge Daniel Williams told him, "You told an endless number of glib lies which you hoped would win over the jury. But they saw through your lies and saw through you. You were unrelenting in your pursuit of your victim. You tried to chat her up, boasting about your career in acting. But there is another side to you - a side that you are unable to recognise how your victim was drunk and vulnerable (sic).

"Your defence was that you were asleep. You have shown no remorse and the only thing that has burdened you is self-pity."
