Social services missed SEVEN chances to save girl, 14, who was 'brainwashed' into having sex with her father

Post by Get'emGonçalo on 30.04.10 13:11

A teenage girl was 'brainwashed' into having sex with her father after social services repeatedly missed signs she was being abused, a court has heard.

The 14-year-old was groomed to take part in perverted acts with her parents even though the family were investigated seven times.

Her parents, who cannot be named, were yesterday jailed for a total of 13 years for the abuse and for trading vile images of her with an American paedophile.
The girl was 'brainwashed' into believing she deserved the abuse and developed 'accommodation syndrome' to her father's desires.
By the time she was 14 the girl was being repeatedly used 'as a sexual toy' by her father but this was not uncovered despite seven visits by social services.
The paedophile was only arrested after his daughter uploaded indecent images of herself onto a social networking site and he was identified by his distinctive tattoos.
The father, 43, was jailed for ten years after admitting sexual activity with a child, four counts of causing a child to engage in sexual activity, and making and distributing indecent images.
The mother, 39, was jailed for three years after she pleaded guilty to two counts of inciting a child to engage in sex acts, child cruelty, and making an indecent image.
Passing sentence yesterday, Judge Francis Gilbert QC described the case as 'very serious'.
He said: 'This is a case of very serious sexual abuse and neglect of your daughter.'
Speaking after the hearing Bronwen Lacey, director of services for children and young people for Plymouth City Council, claimed social services have improved since the case.
She said: 'This is a truly horrific case of abuse that will affect the young person involved for the rest of their life.

'We have been and will continue to focus our efforts on ensuring all the support, guidance and counselling needed is provided and that we work with the young person to help them move on with their life.

'While the conviction is recent, the social services case is historic - initial contact with the child took place in the early 1990s and the last contact with the then social services department was in 2002.
'We have since made massive strides in the standard of children's social care and safeguarding.'
The court heard that the couple moved to Plymouth in 1994, shortly before their daughter was born.
Her older brother had already been taken into care and was later adopted after he suffered serious physical abuse at the hands of his father.
When the girl was four she was found at home alone by police and told them her parents had gone to the pub.
She revealed her father would kick her if she did not eat properly.
The following year her father was seen smacking her across the face and in 2001 she arrived at school with bruising on her arm after her father hit her.
In 2002 the girl said she wanted to get away from her father and was taken into foster care but could not stay because of her 'inappropriate sexualised behaviour'.
Despite this warning sign she was returned to her father who continued to abuse her and removed her from school in 2007 - announcing she would be home-tutored.
Between 1994 and 2002 social services investigated her case seven times but failed to uncover the abuse that was taking place.
Several years later indecent images of the girl were traded on the internet and police proved the man in them was her father because of distinctive piercings and tattoos.
Some of the photos showed apparent acts of gross indecency with an animal whilst another picture showed the girl performing an indecent act with her mother.


The harrowing case was heard at Plymouth Crown Court. The parents cannot be named to protect the 14-year-old girl's identity

The court was read a comment by Judge Miranda Robertshaw, who is hearing care proceedings in the Family Court.
She said: 'The assessment of the local authorities is almost incomprehensible given the previous family history and the vulnerability of such a child.' Detective Constable Andy Thorne, from Devon and Cornwall Police's Force Child Exploitation Unit, expressed his hopes that the victim 'can look to the future'.
He said: 'This was a very difficult but thorough investigation which started as a result of receiving a very small piece of intelligence.
'As a result of detailed, sensitive and lengthy detective work, a team of dedicated officers were able to gather enough evidence to bring about this successful prosecution and bring these two people to justice.
'This has been a multi-agency investigation and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved. Hopefully, the victim of the case can start to look to the future.' The girl's father and mother were ordered to remain on the sex offenders register indefinitely and placed under a Sexual Offences Prevention Order.

One has to assume that these people had no connections with any Masonic or Governmental arm, otherwise we would not have heard anything about it. Plymouth too. big grin

Foster carers are warned about and trained to deal with "inappropriate sexualised behaviour"
I can't believe that that was the reason she couldn't stay in foster care and was returned to her parents. thinking

It is to be hoped that the social workers and other people surrounding this young girl were not of the same ilk as those who surrounded Hollie Greig.
