Statement of the Victim
In a published article in Express, the victim made a statement and recounted the heinous incident. She said “I suffer panic attacks, I cry most of the time, and I need counseling. My daughter has not gone back to school since this happened. I just want my life to be back to normal. Since this ordeal and nearly 14 months on I have had nothing but stress over not just what happened to me but also wanting it to all be over with. The trial prolonged that trauma.”
She also added, “Seeing my daughter cross-examined is not something a girl should ever have to deal with, but she did it for me. I couldn’t stop thinking about how alone she felt in there. The whole experience has caused me to lash out at family and friends. It has affected how I feel about relationships and has caused me to not trust men anymore. I would rather just be alone now.”
Man Repeatedly Shouted the Judge
During the trial, the man repeatedly shouted at Judge Michael Fitton and prosecuting lawyer Roger Griffiths. He said that the care were “a load of f****** bull****”. The judge replied “You are not helped by the fact that you have shown not a shred of remorse or understanding of what you did.
