Edward Weeks Wiki – Edward Weeks Biography
Tina Lewis, 24, was raped by Edward Weeks while she slept at her home in Cwmbran, Torfaen, in December. Tina Lewis took her life after finding video of her partner Edward Weeks’s raping her on her phone. Cardiff Crown Court heard that Ms Lewis found footage of the attack on Weeks’ phone the following day after she recorded the attack on motion-sensitive cameras installed in her bedroom. Weeks, 33, was jailed for eight years after admitting to rape. Prosecutor Matthew Cobbe described Ms Lewis as “childish” and dependent on Weeks during the course of their on-again, off-again five-year relationship. Ms Lewis, who was autistic and described herself as “very vulnerable”, stayed at Weeks’ house just after Christmas, where he raped her after she fell asleep. Weeks let Lewis use her phone to play games the next day when she found the video. Cobbe said that “it was the processes that followed the complaint” that appeared to have had the “most extreme impact” on Lewis.

“In the weeks that followed, she agonized over the process itself, but also the effect it was going to have on the defendant,” he added. Ms Lewis’s sister, Saffron, described the pain of losing her sister in “such disturbing circumstances”. She said that Weeks had become Ms. Lewis’s full-time caregiver and that she relied on him for many tasks. “The effect on our family has been devastating. I have lost my best friend,” she said. “Tina was the biggest inspiration of my life.” Julia Cox, for Weeks, said: “This is a tragic case and nothing I say in mitigation detracts from it.” She said Weeks was also autistic and described his relationship with Ms Lewis as “complex”. Weeks admitted to rape and assault by penetration and was told by Judge Jeremy Jenkins that he had committed “a very wicked act.” In addition to his prison sentence, Weeks was placed on the sex offender registry for life.
