A husband and wife sexually assaulted a 13-month-old baby they were babysitting, a court heard today.
Michael Chase, 52, and wife Lara, 46, took pictures as they abused the baby girl left in their care in a case described by detectives as ‘every parent’s nightmare’.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault and possession of indecent and extreme images last November but his wife denied the offences.
During a trial at Peterborough Crown Court, she claimed they are now separated after marrying in June 2014 and that she would like to see her husband ‘hung, drawn and quartered.’
But a jury dismissed her claims and found her guilty of two counts of sexual assault and the distribution of indecent images which Michael had already admitted taking.
Photos used during the trial included the victim being sexually assaulted by Michael Chase, with the jury deciding that Lara had been assisting him in his actions. Read more:
Stories like these should make you more zealous to pray for your children when they leave your care and are subjected to the care of another. Jesus said, weep for your children. Pray for them. Perversion is becoming the norm in our society.
This is what happens, when you take prayer out of the school systems and introduce electronic gadgets feeding everyone filth for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Read the Bible to your children and pray for them. God called you as a parent to pray and raise them in the admonition of the Lord. You must be faithful.
