A groom has admitted a “sustained and systematic” rape hours before he was due to marry his pregnant partner.
Convicted rapist Derry Flynn McCann, 28, launched a two-hour assault “within sight” of his victim’s front door in Hackney, east London, on 13 January.
He later married his partner having “recently” been released from prison.
McCann, of Hackney, pleaded guilty at Snaresbrook Crown Court to three counts of rape, one count of sexual assault and one count of robbery.
Honorary Recorder Martyn Zeidman told the rapist he had carried out a “terrible” crime and faced a “very, very long time” in prison.
According to police, McCann beat, raped and humiliated the woman during the attack, then took photos of her and stole her mobile phone.
Detectives believe he had been following another woman but lost sight of her so began stalking his victim, eventually pulling her into undergrowth in Victoria Park.
It is understood the teenage McCann was jailed in 2006 for carrying out another prolonged rape.
