The shocking story of the sexual assault and manslaughter of a baby girl in Mandurama continues to shock us all.
First there was the Central West community's collective sadness in April 2014 when we learned the little girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, had died in what it was initially claimed was a tragic accident.
However, police investigators soon suspected the truth was something far more sinister.
Their inquiries led to the arrest of Brendan Toohey, 40, who was charged with the little baby's murder before being found guilty of - and jailed for - manslaughter.
It was a chilling finding, and we shook our heads wondering how someone could hurt an innocent child. Yet still there was more to come.
Earlier this month the same man was sentenced for sexually assaulting the little girl before her death. For that crime he was jailed for four and a half years, with a non-parole period of three years.
With time served, he became eligible for parole the day after he was sentenced.
Worse, because the two sentences were to be served concurrently, he was effectively given just another six months in jail for the sexual assault.
The sentence shocked the little girl's family and angered many in the community.
It's always hard for those who do not sit through the full excruciating details of a court case to appreciate the full meaning of a sentence, but some simply do not make sense to the rest of us.
That little girl suffered more in her 11 months than anyone should have to. We all let her down.
And, sadly, it feels to many of us that with the sentencing of her attacker this month, we have let her down again.
