And while sentencing him to nine years in jail, Recorder Martin Butterworth told James Kipps-Bolton: “You have a fetish in pornography which involves sleeping women, and you took the opportunity to act out that fetish, and you filmed this young woman as you did so.”

On the pretext of helping the teenager, who was distressed because she had no way of getting home, Kipps-Bolton offered to let her spend the night at his flat.

But when she passed out as a result of drinking on top of having taken prescribed medication, he sexually abused her and recorded his activity on his phone, a jury has heard.

Kipps-Bolton (38) of Avenue Road, Leamington, pleaded not guilty at Warwick Crown Court to charges of assault by penetration and sexual assault.

He was jailed for nine years and ordered to register as a sex offender for life after the jury took just two hours and 40 minutes to find him guilty of both charges by a majority of 10-2.

Jailing Kipps-Bolton, Recorder Martin Butterworth told him: “You saw her outside the night club, and you saw she was obviously and very seriously incapacitated.

“No doubt you thought she was drunk, but the truth was she was mentally ill and suffering from the effects of combining alcohol and her medications.

“You saw a sexual opportunity for yourself. I reject the submission that you at any time wanted to help this young woman, and I reject the submission that your offence was opportunistic.

“You got this young woman into your basement flat. At no time did she flirt with you or make any sexual advances, she was unconscious in your bed.

“You have a fetish in pornography which involves sleeping women, and you took the opportunity to act out that fetish, and you filmed this young woman as you did so.”
