A rapist who boasted that he “wanted to sleep with 100 women” has been jailed for five years.
Duncan Burns, 24, of Birkhill, held a privileged position as an accommodation liaison officer at the University of Stirling.
But he was found guilty of raping a female student following a High Court trial in Livingston last month.
Burns returned to the High Court for sentencing on Tuesday, where Lord Mulholland jailed him for five years.
Lord Mulholland told Burns: “Despite making it plain to you that she did not want to have sexual intercourse with you, you ignored her wishes and used force to have sexual intercourse with her.
“That amounts to the crime of rape in Scotland.
“This court takes a very serious view of such criminal conduct.”
During the trial, the court heard how his victim had gone back to her flat after the attack and “googled the definition of rape”.
Giving evidence from behind a screen, the woman told how Burns used his strength to have sex against her will.
Speaking through tears at the High Court in Livingston, the victim said: “I always perceived rape to be more like with a stranger or with violence.
“I knew I’d said no and he knew I was saying no.
“I had no doubts in my mind, but don’t think at the time I knew it was rape.”
She told the court she had liked Burns and started going back to his room, where he constantly pressured her to have sex but she constantly refused.
The woman, who was “shy” about relationships, repeatedly told him “no”.
In March last year, Burns kissed his victim on the breast before raping her in one of the university’s halls of residence.
Burns, of Rosemount Road, Birkhill, was found not guilty of a second rape charge by another woman.
His sentence was backdated to November 1 2017 when he was found guilty.
Burns’ name has also been placed on the sex offenders register.
