An illegal immigrant has been sent to prison for raping an 18-year-old woman at a holiday camp where they worked.
Merhawi Ghebe, 30, from Eritrea, had at first denied the offence at the Gwynedd camp but pleaded guilty after DNA evidence came to light.
In addition to the four-and-a-half year prison term, he was placed on the sex offenders’ register for life.
Caernarfon Crown Court heard that Ghebe could be deported when he is released from prison.
Ghebe had initially told police the girl had pulled him on to a bed and asked him for a hug, and denied any sexual contact.
John Philpotts, prosecuting, said the DNA evidence proved this was a lie.
The court heard that Ghebe had been sentenced to nine months in jail at Isleworth crown court in November 2007 for having a false identity document.
On his release a friend had found him work in a Pwllheli kebab shop, then most of last year he was employed at the camp.
John Wyn Williams, defending, said Ghebe moved to Britain from Eritrea after being in Italy, and it may be that in due course he will be deported.
