Not every mother has that innate “mothers love” everyone talks about. Take this mom, for instance, she and her friend have been jailed for a very disturbing crime against her own son! When her husband left her she became bitter against her little boy, that’s when everything began to turn upside down for her youngster and the rage built up inside this mum spiraled out of control! She did things a regular person would never dream of doing to their worst enemy.
They left this terrified five-year-old child home alone for ten hours wrapped in cellophane INSIDE a cupboard while she went with his older sisters to the seaside to have a relaxing day of shopping and sunbathing. Meanwhile, her son was naked in a cupboard with only fruit and water. Think about that, no bathroom…he was sitting in his own waste for HOURS.
The youngster was also beaten around the head with a metal pole and hit with a stiletto shoe heel in a prolonged campaign of hatred towards him, Bradford Crown Court was told.
Both Muslim women showed no emotion as they were jailed – the mother for two-and-half years and her friend for four years – by a judge who criticised their ‘deliberate scapegoating’ of the boy.
The women, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the boy, became close friends after the mother’s abusive husband walked out of the marriage, leaving her to bring up three children alone.
Judge Peter Hunt said the friend’s relationship with the defenceless boy was ‘highly dysfunctional’ and he was in fear of her, adding: ‘You meted out punishment to him of a very cruel nature indeed.’
In April 2014 she attacked him with a metal pole, causing a deep gash to his chin and covering his arms and legs in bruises.
On another occasion she hit him on the head with a high-heeled shoe and caused a cut to his scalp which they glued together with superglue.
The judge said that when the family decided to go to Blackpool the friend ‘effectively imprisoned’ the boy in the cupboard.
‘You both went to the seaside for a day out leaving him stranded and helpless in a cupboard in an empty house – this was a wicked thing to have done,’ said the judge.
The boy was put in danger and in failing to intervene to protect her child the mother had been seriously derelict in her parental duties.
The court heard the single mother lived with the victim and his sisters, aged six and ten in a three-bedroom house. Her female friend was a regular visitor.
The older sister told the jury via video link that the three children shared a king sized bed and the empty cupboard was in the same room.
‘Every time [mum’s friend] came to the house my brother was put in the cupboard,’ said the schoolgirl.
He would be Sellotaped inside when they all went out to the shops. She said she was ‘scared’ for him when they went to Blackpool.
‘First she told him to take his clothes off and then she put him in the cupboard,’ she said.
On another occasion after school the children were getting ready to go to mosque when the friend attacked the boy with a high heeled shoe.
‘He got a cut on his head, which started bleeding. The blood stopped when they put superglue on it,’ said his sister, who said the woman went to buy glue from the shop and stuck the wound together.
All the children are now living at their grandparents’ home. The boy’s mother, who was a teaching assistant, was found guilty of two offences of child cruelty, between August 2012 and April 2014.
Her friend, who was an IT technician, was convicted of two similar charges of child cruelty and two allegations of unlawfully wounding the child.
This horrid mother got what she deserved, she lost everything. Her crimes were cruel and appalling, this poor 5-year-old had no one to help him , he was left defenseless because the people who should have protected him were the ones hurting him the most.
