What in the world were these clowns thinking…
Fury as jailed rapist who fathered a child with his 15-year-old grooming-gang victim is invited by social workers to be involved in the boy’s upbringing – leaving the girl ‘angry and scared’
- Woman was at risk of being ‘retraumatised’ by the social worker’s decisions
- Council workers in Northern England tried to help rapist meet up with her son
- The girl was 15 when she was raped and impregnated by the man who was one of a group of Pakistani origin males found guilty of attacking girls in grooming gang
A traumatised woman who was raped by a member of a grooming gang and became pregnant with his child was left ‘extremely distressed’ after social workers tried to help him get in contact with her son.
In the ‘perverse’ decision by the unnamed local authority, staff approached a jailed sex attacker and offered him help to be involved in his son’s upbringing, without notifying his mother.
An investigation by The Times found the council notified the man he could seek visits from his child in jail and could apply for his family to have custody of the boy.
Campaigners said the offer could ‘retraumatise’ his victim who lives in Northern England.
Details over her location have been withheld to protect the mother whose case featured in the trial of several men of Pakistani origin were found guilty of dozens of sex offences.
