A BURGLAR released from jail on licence broke into a grandmother’s home and raped her.
Daniel Plain, 29, told the woman, in her 60s, he had a knife — adding: “Just do as I’m telling you to do.”

The attack only stopped when the woman’s granddaughter arrived.
The victim said in a statement read to Leeds crown court: “Daniel Plain has ruined my life.”
Her daughter said: “She is completely broken. She has gone from being a bubbly, outgoing person to someone who is nervous and frightened.”
Sentencing, Judge Tom Bayliss, said: “This was a pitiless and life-scarring attack on a woman in her own home.”
Speaking after the hearing, Detective Inspector Susan MacLachlan said: “Plain was responsible for a truly appalling attack on the victim after he broke into her home in the middle of the night while she slept.

“The traumatic impact that his actions have had on her has been understandably significant, and it is important that we recognise the courage and strength of character she has shown throughout the investigation and the court process.
“Plain has shown himself to be someone who clearly presents a real danger to women, and we hope his imprisonment will provide some level of comfort to the victim and her family and also help to reassure the community.”
Daniel Plain admitted rape and was jailed for life.
