It’s been revealed that a Rotherham grooming victim has been denied compensation
The reason why the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority denied Sammy Woodhouse (the abuse victim) is because she consented to the abuse.
The authorities are denying this poor women compensation because she apparently CONSENTED.
What sort of messed up world do we live in?
Sammy was just 14 when the abuse started.
“Sammy Woodhouse, who waived her entitlement to lifelong anonymity so she can campaign against sexual exploitation, said the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)’s letter concluded:
‘I am not satisfied that you were a victim of sexual activity to which you did not in fact consent.’
This conclusion was reached despite Ms Woodhouse’s abuser being convicted and sentenced to a substantial prison sentence.
She was just 14 when she fell under the spell of 24-year-old abuser Arshid Hussain and suffered years of appalling treatment.”
The CICA said she would receive £11,000 for being raped, but nothing else for being abused.
She told the BBC’s Inside Out programme: ‘We keep hearing a lot of ‘we’ve learnt lessons’.
‘If any adult can privately think that it’s a child’s fault for being abused, beaten, raped, abducted, I think you’re in the wrong job.’
What do you think of this?
In my opinion, it’s shocking, it makes my blood boil.
