A man who abused a two-year-old girl has been given a 17-year-sentence by a judge who called the attack “utterly appalling”.
Luke Arthur Jones left his victim in such agony that she needed morphine and an emergency operation for the “horrific injuries” he caused her.
The 24-year-old then “then put her family through hell” by trying to cover up what he had done to their loved one.
At York Crown Court today, he was given an extended sentence of 17 years, of which he must serve twelve.
He was also put onto the sex offenders register for life and given a sexual harm prevention order for life.
Prosecutor Stephen Wood said the tot needed morphine on her arrival at hospital and underwent an emergency operation within hours.
The child is believed to have made a full recovery. (?)
