A man pleaded guilty yesterday to raping a five-year-old girl so brutally he tore her vagina and broke the blood vessels in her eyes. Nicholas Dean Sennie, 46, will be sentenced next Tuesday for a crime he told the court only "an evil person" would do.
After a night of drinking with the girl's mother in September 2003, Sennie went into the sleeping child's bed and raped her, court heard.
"Her vagina was split with a third-degree tear to her anus and she required surgery to repair the injury," said Crown attorney Mick Makar. "He strangled her to the point where she had broken blood vessels in her eyes."
Sennie then took the 50-pound girl from her southeast Winnipeg home and held her captive in his car while deciding what he was going to do with her, court heard.
When the mother -- who had been dating Sennie for a few months -- woke up and found her boyfriend and her daughter missing, she called him on his phone.
The girl was later returned home, where Sennie held both mother and daughter captive at knifepoint before fleeing.
After a massive police manhunt, Sennie was arrested on a Canada-wide warrant.
Given the aggravating circumstances of this case, the Crown is asking for a 15-year jail sentence, said Makar.
"It is extremely disturbing because she's such a small girl and the effects upon her have been quite devastating," said Makar. "This wasn't a stranger. To some extent, the little girl trusted him."
The child required surgery to repair her physical wounds and has been undergoing counselling sessions with a clinical psychologist to deal with the emotional trauma.
The psychologist's report to the court stated the girl, who is now seven, was still severely traumatized by the rape and after 56 counselling sessions still has difficulty talking about it. Psychologist Linda Rhodes said in a report that the case is the worst she's ever dealt with in her 17-year career.
Sennie, previously convicted in 1979 for sexual assault, told court he hoped everybody involved would heal from their injuries.
He offered no excuses for what he did, although he said alcohol was a factor in his heinous crime. He asked for a six-year sentence.
Associate Chief Judge Mary Kate Harvie is scheduled to sentence him.
Pedophiles should be executed.
Words fail me.
the Crown is asking for a 15-year jail sentence
f%$K you Crown!!!!!!!! That scum need to be burn alive!
only 15 years? Ideally a bullet through the head would be his fate, but couldn't they at least give him life in prison?
Why didn't she call the police?
Cover his genitals with A-1 steak sauce and set some pit bulls loose on him. Then draw and quarter whatever's left.
The most dangerous man in a child's life is Mom's new boyfriend.
You got that right!
The "crown" asks for a 15 year sentence?!?!?!?!?!?!? WTF is wrong with people? 15 life terms (Canada, of course, doesn't have a Death Penalty) sounds more like it.
This guy raped the child in the house, did serious injuries, and didn't wake the mother?
Oh sure, 6 or even 15 years.. By all means. That's just enough time to let him forget whatever tiny fraction of guilt he may have felt for his crimes allowing him to do it again unfettered by a guilty conscience.
Hopefully the prison population will deal with him, and he'll wish he could have death instead.
This POS needs a bullet between the eyes, NOW!
He won't last more than a couple of weeks.
just send him back to the street but provide information on this guy
He asked for a six-year sentence.
