“Hopefully this sentencing will bring a sense of justice for the victim as this kind of crime can have an immense psychological impact.
“Nobody has the right to enter someone’s home uninvited, and I hope that during his time in prison Baker will be able to reflect on his actions and appreciate the impact he had on the victim.”
