UPDATE: Rapist Wendell Baker Sentenced To Life

Walthamstow rapist sentenced to life in prison over 1997 sex attack on pensioner

A man found guilty of rape earlier this week has today been sentenced to life in prison following a hearing at the Old Bailey.

Wendell Baker, 56, of Upper Walthamstow Road, Walthamstow, was told by the judge that he committed a crime of 'extreme violence and depravity.'

Baker was found guilty of raping pensioner Hazel Backwell in her own home in 1997 but walked free in 1999 after a judge ruled out crucial DNA evidence.
