Default Apology for women raped by father made pregnant 19 times

Apology to daughters raped by Sheffield man
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/s...re/8559750.stm

Two daughters made pregnant 19 times by their abusive father were given an apology by the authorities which failed to protect them.



Sue Fiennes, Sheffield Safeguarding Children's Board:

Two daughters made pregnant 19 times by their abusive father were given an apology by the authorities which failed to protect them.

The apology was made during the publication of the executive summary into a serious case review.

The Sheffield man, who cannot be named, was given a life sentence after admitting 25 counts of rape in 2008.

A serious case review found there were missed opportunities to protect the children over three decades.

The review, carried out by safeguarding children boards in Sheffield and Lincolnshire, acknowledged the family had contact with 28 different agencies and 100 members of staff over 35 years, including police, doctors, nurses and social workers.

Sue Fiennes, independent chair of Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board, said: "We want to apologise to the family at the heart of this case. It will be clear that we have failed this family."

Professor Pat Cantrill, independent report author of the serious case review, said opportunities "were missed individually and collectively."

She added: "The inquiries that were identified should have resulted in the children been taken to a place of safety but that did not occur."

Ms Cantrill said authorities had difficulties dealing with issues arising from this case.

"For some professionals, I honestly believe they got quite stuck around this situation. They didn't know how to handle it."

The father was 56 at the time of his sentencing at Sheffield Crown Court.

The sentencing judge, Alan Goldsack QC, said the case was the worst he had seen in 40 years.

The judge heard the attacks on the victims led to 19 pregnancies.

Nine of the children were born, two of whom died on the day of their birth. Another 10 pregnancies were miscarried or aborted.

The abuse started when the women were pre-pubescent, and they were badly beaten if they failed to comply.

The father's minimum jail term of 19-and-a-half years was cut to 14-and-a-half years at the Court of Appeal in May 2009.

It is a little bit to late to be offering an apology.

Yet this same child welfare system took a kid away from his parents for being "too thin" and the social workers force-fed the kid junk food.

A whopping 14 years. That's what the court thinks of the value of these 2 girls' ruined lives.
Disgusting.

Typical.

If a parent spanks a child all hell breaks lose. But rape a child? Go ahead, nothing wrong with that.

Trust the govt. to do the wrong thing at the wrong time.
