Haycock, who was found guilty of raping a child under 13 at Worcester Crown Court on the 1st of October 1, was today sentenced to a three-year community order in addition to a 35 days’ rehabilitation requirement. 

Following the sentencing, the girl’s mother has said ‘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 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’. 

The heartbroken mother found the words to praise the courage of her daughter, who testified at the trial. She said: ‘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’.
