Mother left baby and toddler locked in car while she went drinking in bar... at 4am

Post by HotlipsHealy on 26.08.11 17:42



A mother left her two young sons alone in an unlocked car while she was drinking in a bar until nearly 4am.
Police found the youngsters - one aged nearly three, the other just eight months - on a street in Rusholme, Manchester, after a passer-by raised the alarm.
Officers rescued the boys and waited by the car for 40 minutes until mother Kayleigh McNaughton, 21, emerged from a nearby bar at around 3.45am.
The vehicle, which belonged to a friend of McNaughton, smelled of wet nappies and vomit and there was no sign of any food, Manchester magistrates' court heard.
When the police asked the older child where his mother was, he pointed up the street and said: 'Mummy that way.'
McNaughton has been warned she could face jail after admitting two counts of neglecting children in a manner likely to cause them unnecessary suffering.
She left the court in tears, with her lawyer describing her as a 'loving mum' who was 'distressed' about what she had done.

McNaughton had driven into the Rusholme area in the early hours of August 13.
Just before 3.10am, police received a call from a concerned member of the public who had passed the parked car.
They rushed to the scene and found the older child standing up in the rear footwell and the baby strapped into a car seat.
When McNaughton arrived she was unsteady on her feet and smelled strongly of alcohol, the court heard.

Left in a car: The children were abandoned in this street in Rusholme, Manchester
She initially claimed she had only been away for a few minutes - but later confessed she had been with a female friend drinking in the Saki Bar for up to an hour.
Matthew Wallace, defending, said McNaughton had intended to go to a chemists to buy painkillers before ending up in the bar.
He said: 'She is distressed about her behaviour. For reasons she cannot explain she just wanted to get away.
'Normally she is a loving and caring mum and is totally ashamed of herself.'
Mr Wallace said that McNaughton, who has never previously been in trouble, had been in a very violent and abusive relationship.
She had been having problems with the children, one of whom was teething and was feeling depressed, the court heard.
Magistrates sent the case to Manchester Crown Court for sentencing, warning McNaughton that she needed 'greater punishment' than they were able to give.
Hugh Keachie, chairman of the magistrates, said:' We don't think we've sufficient powers in this court to deal with you.
'The offences are so serious you need greater punishment than we can give.'
The children are now in the care of social services and McNaughton is said to be living in a Manchester refuge.

Why has this woman not got a government spokesman? Or a fund?

'The offences are so serious you need greater punishment than we can give.'

And yet the McCanns are free to have a police sponsored Fund and a Carter Ruck approved book deal while this woman has her kids taken from her.

And read the comments . Not Whooshed as yet.

• Isn't this exactly what be McCanns did ? No doubt some of you on here condeming this woman, actually feel sorry for them. Neglect is neglect, makes no difference what someone's social status - Fiona,
• How different it would have been for her had she been a middle class doctor boozing it up in a Tapas bar in Portugal ! - MV, Cambs
• She's being given the right punishment, the ones from portugal deserve a severe punishment - Now, Then

Every one of the comments criticising the McCanns has been rated highly, and every comment criticising those comments has been downgraded.

Interesting.

this mother should have called in the barrister who went to Portugal and told the McCanns their behaviour was 'well within the bounds of reasonable parenting'.

Interesting if that barrister would have stood up in court and said that about this non professional mother.

I hope it will be a very much published trial and her lawyers will use the "McCann defense": it was reasonable parenting.

They must be shitting green bricks at the moment.

Who's brave enough to get in touch with Carter-Ruck and ask them if they'll do this poor young mother a favour and represent her for free?

On that note...you've probably seen it but it made me smile.

Hallo Vera and welcome - I see your a fairly new member.

I love your suggestion.

let us email carter ruck at lawyers@carter-ruck.com to make this very positive suggestion. They can use the 'McCann defence' as suggested by another poster.

When going onto the CR website to get the contact email I noted that they are recruiting - lawyers with 1 - 4 year post qualification experience. Good in these recessionary times that here is an expanding firm needing more staff. Whether these extra staff are needed for the Mccann account, obviously I could not say!

Also, don't forget to quote Kate McCann herself (in her Carter-Ruck approved manuscript) that CR will work quietly behind the scenes without payment for child neglectors.
