A mother was devastated after the rapist of her 5-year-old daughter walked free from court.
The past cannot be changed, and injustice can never be fully corrected. Yet, those who have been harmed hope that at least the system and society will condemn and punish the ones who did them wrong.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case. After he walked free from court with community service, a mother has slammed the sentence handed to the pedophile who raped her five-year-old daughter.
The name of the mom cannot be revealed to protect the anonymity of her daughter. Yet, this woman explained that Callum Haycock, 21, from Kidderminster, Worcestershire, has ‘ripped apart’ her family.
This human monster was found guilty of raping a child under 13 at Worcester Crown Court on October 1 but was sentenced to a three-year community order and 35 days’ rehabilitation requirement.
Also, Haycock was fined £200 and ordered to pay £2,500 to the victim. He will be put on the Sexual Offenders’ Register for five years.

The heartbroken mother of the victim said that she saw ‘no justice’ for her daughter and claimed that she will appeal the sentence at the High Court.
“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.
We’ve appealed to the High Court in London. This has ripped our lives apart. We’ve had to have counseling, 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 said that the courage of her daughter is the only thing that consoles her.
The girl testified at the trial, and the mother said she was “incredibly brave” and she was very proud of her. She described her daughter as “one of the bravest little girls” she has ever met in life.

The mother continued:
“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 counseling to try to sort that out. She has difficulties forming relationships with strange men in her life, obviously.
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.”
