    What a despicable act. The criminal who acted like an animal was just thinking of his sexual gratification.He went out if his way and broke into the victim’s home. making up his mind to deflower her thereby changing the course of her young life. He did not even consider the fact that she is disabled. I do hope that justice would prevail and that the long arm if the law will deal with him to the maximum.
