Sammy Woodhouse was 14 when she was sexually abused by one of the men from Rotherham’s notorious paedophile gangs. She says Arshid Hussain coerced her into a relationship, crimes like robbery and drug dealing before she had his child at the age of just 15.
Now she’s campaigning for a law to make sure children aren’t jailed for offences they committed at the hands of abusers. And she’s written a book about her ordeal – Just a Child. Cathy Newman spoke to her earlier.
