    • The two-year-old girl is believed to be the youngest-ever Briton to give evidence
    • She was initially reluctant to speak and was too scared to give a mouth swab
    • The unnamed defendant was given more than 10 years in jail for child sex crimes
    • NSPCC has called for more child experts to be employed to help in future cases
    A two-year-old girl has become the youngest person in British history to give evidence after a specialist team was called in to interview her.

    The defendant, who has not been named to keep the identity of the child hidden, was sentenced to more than ten years in prison for child sex offences following her testimony.

    A representative from the Ministry of Justice’s register of intermediaries, which deals with minors giving evidence in court cases, came in to aid police with talking to the girl.

    The NSPCC and other child protection experts have said the landmark case should be a deterrent to paedophiles who think vulnerable witnesses or victims will remain silent.

    I don't know that most 2yos are clear enough with their speech or memories to be able to testify in a case like that. I'm sure, somewhere, they are, but not most 2yos. But still if they have the physical evidence and all they need for the baby is to get them to say "Uncle Steve touched me on my peepee" then yes, I think they could do that.

    If you read the whole article, that's basically what she did. Said who did it and showed where on a doll. Pretty common to do in the US, guess they're just figuring it out in the UK.

    The question is, where do you draw the line? Why 3? What do you tell a girl who was brutally raped on her 4th birthday and will never be able to have kids because of it?

    For that matter, why not an 80 year-old woman, who had only slept with one man, and he died 20 years prior, when she gets anally raped by 3 men?

    I generally don’t agree with the death penalty, I’m just trying to figure out where one would draw that invisible line between jail and death.
