Toddler aged 3 found wandering streets after Mum goes off to work

Post by Upsy Daisy on 15.09.13 7:23

Have a read at this folks, local news.  So, a 'single teenage Mum of a lesser class' gets 12 months community payback order and needs to be supervised by social workers before the authorities can be assured that she is fit to look after her child for going off to work for a few hours leaving her child behind, yet the McScams get to go out after downing a few glasses of NZW (already tipsy), then have some more (but listen at the door, allegedly, a few times) and receive not even a clip round the ear from the authorities only because their child actually 'did disappear permanently'.... tsk tsk....what what what.........Just goes to show what happens when you are 'respectable ahem, Doctors in their late 30's, who clothe their kids in Monsoon attire, etc.and let the kids keep clean and share a toothbrush....  Yes Gerry, that's what happens in your native land when you go out and abandon your kids of a night/day........

Abandoned toddler found wandering streets in pjs in filthy condition

Escaped: Mother of abandoned toddler sentenced for child neglect at Livingston Sheriff Court.© STV
 
A teenage mother went to work leaving her toddler home alone before the child managed to escape and was found wandering the streets in filthy pyjamas.
The single mother thought it was safe to leave her three-year-old daughter locked in the flat after her babysitter did not turn up.
At Livingston Sheriff Court on Friday, the court heard the youngster unlocked the door with a spare key and walked to a local shop in her pyjamas.
She was found walking the streets of Whitburn, West Lothian, alone with a spoiled nappy and covered in dirt.
It was more than five hours later that the mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, called the police and reported her daughter missing after she came home from work.
Depute fiscal Lindsey Armstrong said a member of the public spotted the youngster wandering alone in the street at around 2pm on Monday, July 22.
She said: "The child was alone at that time wearing her pyjamas. She couldn't provide her name or details of her home address.
"Police attended and the child appeared to be happy enough. A crowd had gathered but nobody recognised the girl and it was confirmed that no one had come looking for her.”
Miss Armstrong said the youngster's general appearance was unclean.
She added: "Her face and body were covered in dirt, her hands and feet were extremely dirty and she'd soiled her nappy some time previously.
"Police took the girl to Whitburn Health Centre, where a nurse washed her and threw her filthy dummy in the bin. She was then taken to St. John's Hospital in Livingston for a medical examination but no concerns were identified.
“Just after half past five that evening, the accused phoned the police to report that her daughter had gone missing from her home address.
“At first she claimed that she had fallen asleep on the sofa before the girl left, but she later confessed that she'd actually been at work all day. When interviewed she admitted that she'd left her daughter in the house because she had to work and couldn't find a child carer.”
The mother appeared for sentence on Friday after earlier pleading guilty to child neglect.
Iain Smith, defending, said his client had struggled to cope with depression and had stopped taking her medication two weeks earlier after discovering she was pregnant.
He said: “She understands it's wholly wrong and, although the report doesn't adequately convey the position, she's full of remorse and she can't believe the decision that she took."
Sheriff Donald Ferguson told the woman: "This is a serious matter and it could have ended up an absolute tragedy. This is a terrible thing that happened and I do know you've suffered since then. It's nevertheless a very serious criminal offence.
"Local people must have been very concerned coming across the child. I think there has to be an element of payback from that. You have to work very hard to demonstrate that you can be trusted with your child again."
He sentenced the woman to a Community Payback Order under which she will be supervised by social workers for 12 months.

AND ....... it wasn`t even as if she left the child to go out with friends wining and dining - she did it because she had to go to work !

And she (rightly) is sentenced and now has social services monitoring her ...... but the McCann`s weren`t sentenced and don`t have social services monitoring them (as far as we know).

Exactly Woofer!!! And their behaviour, we are expected to BELIEVE, was well within the bounds of responsible parenting....

my ar$e !


Anyone that leaves their kids alone, regardless, needs a good punishment for doing so. Even nipping to the shops for five minutes...just not on!!

yes
