The mother of a young man paralyzed after being abducted has demanded harsher punishments for her daughter’s “monster” ex-boyfriend and Paul.
Heartbroken, Nikki Lin, 47, said: “I just hope they rot. I can’t stand them.”
Her daughter Angel, 19, was grabbed by her then-boyfriend in September 2020 after an altercation in Rothley, Lakes, and thrown into a van.
She fell out of the van at 60mp on the A6 and was unable to eat, walk or talk.
Nikki told Sky News: “I get beaten up every day for watching this.
“I’m worried every day that I’m not here anymore. Who will look for it?”
Nikki added that Angel would like her captives to “stay in prison longer than what they found. They have no regrets.”
Chay Bowskill, 20, was sentenced by Leicester Crown Court to seven-and-a-half years in prison after being found guilty of kidnapping, control and coercion and obstruction of justice.
Her friend Rocco Sansome, 20, who was driving the van, was sentenced to 21 months in prison for the abduction.
Nikki said she was offended by the sentences. He added: “They do not know what they have done to my family. They do not know what they have done to us all.
“I just hope they rot. I can’t stand them.”
Angel’s parents had earlier criticized the jail sentence of her controlling boyfriend.
Her heartbroken mother, Nikki, said: “She’s ruined Angel’s life.
“She will never have a job or a mother. She will never hang out with her brothers, sisters or friends again.
“And it has ruined our lives. It needs 24-hour, 24-hour care. That is our life now.”
“He’ll be out in less than three years. That makes me angry. What’s the point of sending monsters like that?”
“He may retreat trying to destroy other women’s lives while my daughter is trapped forever.”
Angel’s father, Patrick, 53, insisted: “I will never forgive him for what he has done.
“He stole everything from the angel and paid such a small price with this sentence.”

Bowskill, 20, was filmed holding an angel “like a rag doll” across a busy road and throwing her into the back of a transit, which accelerated.
Moments later, a young college student fell out of a car. Boskel was convicted of kidnapping and rape, but was acquitted by pushing Angel out of the van.
He was sentenced on Monday to a total of seven-and-a-half years in prison and will serve half of his sentence behind bars for three years and nine months.
He will be eligible for release in June 2024, given the time he has already been remanded.
Angel’s family said they were angry that Boscal had been sentenced to just two years in prison for the abduction – although the crime carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
He said he planned to call for a review of the abduction sentence, saying it was “extremely lenient”.
He added that he was shocked by the sentence when the judge acknowledged the serious consequences of the abduction.
Although it can carry a life sentence, there are currently no penal guidelines for kidnapping, which the family believes works in Boscal’s favor.
Angel loved life, she was full of life and there was so much to look forward to. He dreamed of becoming a forensic scientist for the police.
Angel’s devoted parents, both cleaners, from Loughborough, Lex, say they now face tens of thousands of pounds in bills to care for her at home.
Nikki, the mother of six, said: “For weeks the doctors will not believe that the angel will live. I will never forget the face of the doctor who told me she was going to die.
“I felt like my heart was bursting at the seams. The world was spinning. I couldn’t eat for a week – I was away from the water.
“We still don’t know how long the angel is and what standard of living we can give him.”
Patrick said: “Angel loved life, she was full of life and there was so much for her. She dreamed of becoming a forensic scientist for the police.
“But he had all his hopes and dreams, and our hopes and dreams for him were taken away.
“I will never walk her down the aisle. We will never see her graduate or get her dream job – or help her move home.”
“We will never have angels younger than him. And we will never enjoy his blasphemous temperament.”
Angel was found lying in the A6 carriageway near his Loughborough home on September 27, 2020. He is thought to have survived an earlier attempt to oust him following his abduction.
Boscal and Paul were cleared of injuries sustained in the van crash when they both claimed that Angel jumped because he had ended their relationship.
But Angel’s family said the footage was evidence that Angel wanted to dig up Boscal and was trying to get away from him.
She says she was fed up with his controlling messages calling her a “slag” and even slapping her with a curfew while he was behind bars.
In his sentencing remarks, Judge Timothy Spencer QC told Boscal in Leicester Crown Court: “You treated him badly.
“She was humiliated by you in a place where she must have felt useless on a permanent basis.”
For weeks the doctors would not believe that the angel would survive. I will never forget the face of the doctor who told me she was going to die.
But Judge Spencer said he had taken into account his youth and immaturity when sentencing.
He said he agreed with Bowskill’s own barrister’s statement that he was “the little boy in the man’s shoes.”
Judge Spencer told her: “You’re a 20-year-old fool.”
Boskel of Sisten, Lex was acquitted of GBH intent, but was convicted of kidnapping Angel and sentenced to two years in prison.
He was further convicted of controlling and coercing behavior and sentenced to three years and three months in prison for continuing to run.
A jury found him guilty of perverting the justice system, for which he was sentenced to two years and three months in prison.
Her friend Rocco Sansome, 20, of Loughborough, was convicted of kidnapping and sentenced to 21 months in prison.
He confessed to possessing a class B (cannabis) controlled drug and was sent to prison for seven days.
He also confessed to driving while unable to use cannabis and was banned from driving for 12 months.
Farah Nazir, chief executive of Women’s Aid, said last night: “The fact is that the culprit can get out so quickly that we urgently need domestic abuse training for all judges.
“It sends a dangerous message about how seriously we take violence against women in this country – the judges need to send a clear message that domestic violence will not be tolerated.”

Strange decisions of the judge
The judge criticized the prison sentence given to the angel’s kidnapper because of its bizarre sentence history.
In August last year, Judge Timothy Spencer QC acquitted a far-right terrorist with instructions: “Go and read the classics.”
Ben John, a 22-year-old white supremacist who was found with the bomb leaflet, was criticized by the charity Hope Not Hate for instructing Jane Eyre and others to read it.
The judge told him: “Start with the story of Pride and Prejudice and Dickens’s Two Cities. Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.” He added: “Think of Hardy. Think of Trolop.
Earlier this month, the Court of Appeals ruled that extremist John could face up to two years in prison.
And in April of last year, Judge Spencer released serial thief Carl Walters until he broke the law, found a job, and took drugs for six months.
