Teenager, 19, who raped an eight-year-old girl and sexually assaulted three boys is freed after less than two years in prison
A depraved teenager who raped an eight-year-old girl and sexually assaulted three young boys between the ages of four and ten has been released from prison after serving less than two years behind bars.
Vile Jack Dalziel, 19, sexually assaulted all four of his young victims at a house in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire between 2018 and 2019 before eventually being jailed for three and a half years.
But due to Scottish automatic early release guidelines, Dalziel has now been released midway through his sentence leaving the families of his victims disgusted and terrified.
During a lengthy trial, in which an unrepentant Dalziel forced his four young victims to testify in court, the shocking nature of his crimes were revealed.
Dalziel had restrained the eight-year-old girl at the property before raping her.
The Sun reports the monster then warned the young girl if she told anyone what had happened he would ‘kill and bury her.’
In October 2019, Dalziel sexually assaulted a four year-old boy and attempted to rape him before threatening him and his mother.
It’s thought the child, who had been punched in the stomach by Dalziel, managed to escape by kicking him in the face.
He also attacked and sexually assaulted two other boys aged nine and ten, threatening one with a needle before handcuffing him to a chair and threatening to strangle him.
The other child was restrained with a chain and sexually assaulted.
Following the news that Dalziel is back on the streets, the mother of two of the victims – the girl now 12, and boy now 4 – has said her children’s lives have been shattered by the abuse.
She told the Sun: ‘My daughter has given up on life. She hasn’t been out of the house since this happened.
‘We can barely get her to go to school. They both had meltdowns a few weeks ago.
My daughter was holding her head screaming, ‘he’s ruined my life’.
‘My son was shouting, ‘I remember what that dirty boy did to me, why me?’
