A man has been jailed for 14 years at a Military Court in North Yorkshire having been found guilty of two counts of rape.

Kevin Galbraith, who is 49 and an ex-army sergeant originally from Ireland, was found guilty of raping a woman in her Cambridge home in 2011.

On that day, in October 2011, Galbraith had been out for drinks at a local pub celebrating his birthday weekend.

He had agreed to stay the night at the victim’s home but they fell asleep in separate bedrooms. However, during the night, she woke up to being raped by Galbraith.

She managed to push him off and he left the address on foot.

The victim reported the incident to police on February last year, after another of Galbraith’s victim’s in Scotland made an allegation of rape from 2003.

Galbraith, of Halbeaph, Dunfermline, attended a voluntary interview on 28 August last year.

He denied two charges of rape but was found guilty at Catterick Military Court.

He was sentenced on Monday, 25 November to seven years for the Cambridge incident and a further seven years for the Scotland offence.
