A RAPIST who forced himself on an escort at a Bournemouth hotel told a judge he'd be shot on his doorstep and shouted the victim’s address as he was sentenced to 12 years behind bars yesterday.

Lee Hogben had been having consensual sex with the victim, who then advertised her services via an adult work website, when he removed his protection despite her repeated objections.

The woman had met Hogben, 35, at a town centre hotel on January 19 last year. Hogben was with the victim for more than two hours, but left without paying the agreed-upon price for her services, jurors heard during a trial at Bournemouth Crown Court.

The woman specifically indicates that clients must use protection.

Hogben, formerly of Windham Road, Boscombe, was convicted of rape and two counts of assault by penetration following the trial.

He then admitted threatening to destroy property, disclosing private photographs, breaching a restraining order and making a malicious communication. The second indictment relates to different victims, including a woman who was repeatedly threatened by Hogben and had to leave Dorset as a result.

In messages sent to that victim, Hogben said: “You’re not going to be able to see, alright? I’ll have someone ram you off the road.”

He also told her he was standing outside her grandparents’ house with a can of petrol and a box of matches and warned: “I’m going to smash your face in the minute I get out of jail.”

He has not yet entered pleas to separate charges of driving while disqualified and driving without appropriate insurance.

The hearing was repeatedly interrupted by Hogben, who appeared via prison video link. At one point he accused Judge Stephen Climie of corruption and shouted: “For what you’ve done to me, I’m coming for you.”

He also shouted the victim’s full address on a number of occasions.

Jodie Mittell, prosecuting, read aloud two victim impact statements during the hearing.

The victim of the rape said she has considered self-harm as a result of Hogben’s actions.

Nick Robinson, mitigating, said the offences occurred when Hogben, who has emotionally unstable personality disorder, was in a "heightened emotional state".

The defendant suffered years of sexual abuse while in the care system and then when he returned home, Mr Robinson said.

"His coping mechanism is driving, violence, abuse and talking to people the way he talks about himself and to himself," the barrister said.

Judge Climie said Hogben meets the criteria for dangerousness. As a result, he was sentenced to 12 years in prison, as well as an extended licence period of six years, making the total sentence 18 years. Hogben was also sentenced to indefinite restraining orders and a sexual harm prevention order.

After hearing the sentence, Hogben repeatedly threatened the judge, shouting: "You'll get a shotgun in the face at night."
