'The Mirror' recently released the story of an extremely elderly woman who was sexually assaulted in her very own home.
A TV aerial fitter entered her home in order to fit an aerial but with a vulgar and disturbing idea implanted in his mind instead.
A jury found Darren Penfold, 48, guilty of the attack and also administering a substance with intent to abuse her.
She woke up the next morning (January 2010) only partially clothed and frightened.
She sobbed in court: “He’s altered my life. I don’t recognise myself as the same person'.
This story proves that drink-spiking not only effects the younger party-go'er, but it can effect anybody of any age in any place.
To think a vulnerable woman of 85 was treated so brutally in her own home really does make us feel ill!
Feel free to leave a comment in relation to this case or drink spiking.
