A convicted child sex offender was given custody of a child before getting her pregnant, despite authorities knowing about his criminal record, a report has found.
The victim, known as Ruby, was abused for several years by the man, who was her legal guardian, according to a report by the Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership, made up of council officers, and local NHS and police leaders.
Ruby then became pregnant and needed a partnership, and it was only at this point that the campaign of abuse came to light.
Some concerns were raised about the paedophile’s previous criminal record, but the local authorities did not look for more legal advice before giving the girl into his care…
…The predator threatened to commit suicide if she told anyone about the abuse.
