Girl raped by paedophile was left too afraid to leave home or go to school
A girl under the age of 13 raped by a twisted cocaine fuelled paedophile has been left so traumatised she was left too afraid to leave home or go to school.
The victim of Anthony Churton’s sickening assault has banged her head against walls and pulled clumps of her hair out, a court was told.
Sex offender Churton, 35, from Leigh, Greater Manchester, left the child unable to sleep for months.
He attacked the girl at 4am after a 10-hour drink and coke binge and only stopped when her mum heard suspicious noises.
Bolton Crown Court heard the victim has been so damaged by the vile attack she was too afraid to leave home.
In a statement the girl's family said Churton had robbed her daughter of her childhood.
It said: "After what happened my daughter would not sleep in her room and when he was released on bail she was terrifying he would come back.
"I had to sit with her so she could feel safe and she refused to leave her own home to go to school. She has been pulling clumps of her hair out because of what this man did to her."
The statement added: "I just feel angry and guilty at what my daughter has had to go through. I haven't slept for months. My daughter has been robbed of her childhood."
Monster Churton wept as he was jailed for nine years after he admitted two charges of rape.
The beast described the attack as “a terrible accident”.
Churton snuck into the youngster's bedroom in November 2019 after a coke binge with pals.
He had been out since 6.15pm the previous evening when he “stumbled” into the child’s bedroom at 4am on November 16.
After creeping into her room while she slept, the twisted paedophile raped her – only stopping when her mum burst in.
Wayne Jackson, prosecuting, said: "The officers noticed the girl was visibly upset was shaking and was stressed."
The victim suffered “severe psychological harm” and it has taken her more than two months to relive the ordeal to police.
She has been unable to go upstairs and back into her own bedroom, and has been pulling clumps of her hair out.
Churton initially denied any wrongdoing and claimed he “stumbled” into the girl’s room and was being “stitched up”.
But police found samples of his DNA on the girl and he later pleaded guilty.
Sentencing, Judge Graeme Smith said: "This girl who for a month and a half wouldn't even go upstairs at home and sleep in her bedroom."
He continued: "The explanation is that it would not have happened without you having consumed alcohol or drugs but this is very difficult to comprehend.
"Taking alcohol and drugs is not an excuse for such outrageous conduct. It is difficult to understand how you committed these offences – even in that condition."
Churton was also made subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order which will ban him for life from loitering with 25 minutes of any school, nursery or children's play area. He was also ordered to sign the Sex Offender Register indefinitely.
