Babysitter Jailed For Enabling Attacker

A babysitter from Cardiff has been jailed for 16 years for giving a three-year-old boy to a known paedophile who drugged and assaulted him as he slept.

Claire Semmens, 28, handed the boy to Aaron Hughes who was jailed for life for the sex attacks on the sedated toddler.

Hughes, 32, filmed the attacks on his mobile phone so he could watch them over and over again on his computer.

He was caught when police did a routine check on his computer because they believed he had breached a court order by downloading child pornography.

Judge Phillip Richards told the pair: "These were genuinely horrendous offences."

Adding, "it almost defies belief that any human being would do such a thing to such an innocent young child.
