A mother was left devastated after the man who defiled her 5-year-old daughter walked free from court.
21-year-old Callum Haycock from Kidderminster, Worcestershire was spared jail time even after he raped a child. He was sentenced to only 35 days’ rehabilitation requirement and a three-year community order.
The pedo was also ordered to pay £2,500 to the victim and will be on the sex offender registry for 5 years.
After the sentencing, the victim’s heartbroken mother said she saw ‘no justice’ for her poor child.
“I ran out of the court and slammed the door behind me, as I walked out of the court I just shouted ‘it’s a f***ing joke’. I see no justice for my daughter in this,” she expressed.
“We’ve appealed to the High Court in London. This has ripped our lives apart.”
The parent, who cannot be named to protect the child’s identity, continued: “We’ve had to have counselling, it’s ruined our lives. It separated me and my partner because we both didn’t know how to deal with it so we took it out on each other.”
She also said that she was proud of her brave daughter, who testified at the trial.
“She’s been incredibly brave, she gave evidence at the trial and everything. I’m immensely proud of her. She’s one of the bravest little girls I’ve ever met,” the mother expressed.
“She will get over this but she will never forget it. It will always be there but she’s not the sort that is going to let it ruin her life. She still smiles every day and gets on with life.
“She does wet the bed but we’re going through counselling to try to sort that out. She has difficulties forming relationships with strange men in her life, obviously.”
The mother added: “We told her that he’d got to pay her some money, because he’s got to pay her £2,500 compensation, and she turned around and said she wants to give it to the poor.
“The police were amazing with us and so were Witness Support. They were very supportive and patient and they handled everything with dignity.”
