The daughter of a paedophile who was convicted and jailed for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl has said that, to her mind, her father should be hanged for his crimes.
When Becky Handley, pictured above, read about the misdemeanors of her father, Raymond Handley, in local newspapers, she was shocked and disgusted.
To make matters worse for the convicted, his daughter has now totally disowned him and wants nothing more to do with him for the rest of her life.
Becky said about her father to reporters, “I want the death penalty brought back for people like my father. I think he should be hanged for what he has done.”
Becky added that she personally felt terrible for the young girl who was the victim of the abuse, saying, “I really feel bad for this young girl and I really hope that she gets through it. He has stolen a little girl’s innocence and I hope he rots in prison and dies there for what he has done.”
She explained how she had no idea about her father’s antics until she came across an article about him in the local newspaper.
“I just saw the name in the headline and I immediately thought ‘Oh God, he’s dead!’ But when I read the headline properly, I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I felt deeply ashamed to have the Handley name. I want my father to die behind bars.”
Dawn Williams, Handley’s ex-wife and Becky’s mother, also spoke to reporters, saying, “I always had a gut feeling about him. I found out that he was breaking into schools and houses and I kicked him out. He is a horrible man. He’s a real rotten apple and I wish I’d known more about him before I started a relationship with him.”
