‘Wicked’ mum who let husband rape her daughter has sentence increased


A mother has had another two years added to her jail term after a judge found the original sentence was too lenient.

Mary-Louisa Andrews was described as ‘wicked’ after letting her husband Anoyke rape her daughter and was jailed for three years.

However, after an appeal by prosecutors that was increased to five years.

Anoyke Andrews was jailed for 20 years last year and the girl gave permission for her parents to be named so that they would be publicly exposed.

The girl was sexually abused from the age of 10 when they were on holiday in Southport.

He continued to rape her repeatedly until she was 16 and got her pregnant three times – the first time when she was 12.

Her mother was convicted for allowing the cruelty to continue.

Detective Constable Tejinder Sidhu, said: ‘We welcome the decision of the Solicitor General to increase the sentence of Mary-Louisa Andrews.

‘This was a horrific case of abuse in that the person who should have protected the victim, her mother, failed to do so and let the abuse go on.

‘Thames Valley Police is committed to investigate sexual abuse and I hope that this case demonstrates that you will always be listened to by officers, who will investigate with sensitivity in order to bring offenders before the courts and bring them to justice.’

She broke down over video link as Judge Francis Sheridan handed down her original sentence.

He told her: ‘The tears you shed are for yourself. I do not think any of them are for your daughter. I am not in any way influenced. You have not shown any sign of remorse.

‘It is time somebody told you to your face – and I will: You were a wicked mother. When your daughter complained, her complaints were dismissed. You will take that dismissal to the grave. You betrayed your daughter to stand by your husband.

‘She has gone through what can only be described as a life of hell. There must have been times in her young life where there appeared to be almost no remission from abuse.’
