A man has been jailed for sexually assaulting a woman who was unable to move after taking a legal high.

Jason Jones, 48, of Camperdown Terrace, Exmouth, had denied sexual assault by penetration but was found guilty at Exeter Crown Court last year.

The court had heard how the victim was attacked in a chair in his flat.

Jailing Jones for three yeas and four months, Judge Phillip Wassall described part of Jones's defence as "frankly ludicrous".

The victim said she had been unable to move after taking a legal high at Jones' flat while waiting for a friend.

Jones, a sailing instructor, had claimed she tore her underwear in two in a bid to frame him.
