Parents Who Left Kids In Squalor Avoid Jail

5:03pm UK, Friday April 08, 2011

Frazer Maude, Sky News reporter

The parents of five children, all under the age of seven, have been given suspended sentences for leaving them unsupervised in "squalid conditions".

Neighbours of Angela Freer, 31, and Christopher Steele, 55, told police they saw one of the younger children drinking lager through the window of their Blackpool home with no adults present.

When police gained entry to the house they found the children had no clean bedding or clothes, and that the house smelt of urine and faeces.

They said one of the younger children was asleep on a sofa, and appeared to be intoxicated.

Both parents initially blamed each other for the children being left unsupervised,although Steele later admitted he was the last to leave the house.

Freer, pregnant with her sixth child at the time of the offence in September 2009, returned to the house drunk after visiting a local pub.

The pair were both given 20-week suspended sentences by the Recorder of Preston, Judge Russell QC.

He told them their children had been left "in a squalid house, in a filthy state".

Child reportedly found by police 'intoxicated' on the sofa

He said although he saw this as a serious case of neglect, not to suspend the sentences would help the pair "look to the future".
The pair refused to comment as they left court.

Their children, who cannot be named, are now in the care of either foster or adoptive parents.

Absolutely appalling - a 20 week suspened sentence!!! If the judges came down more harshly on these sort of incidents, perhaps other parents might think twice before doing it. angry

The Mccanns were not jailed for repeatedly leaving their children in danger, until one of them obviously sucummed to danger as she hasn't been seen for nearly 4 years since, so it's only right that neglect, like cannibis, is decriminalised and no one should now be sent to jail for neglect. If it's good enough for the McC's then it should be good enough for all negligent parents.

After all, these kids are old enough to take care of themselves. Madeleine wasn't even 4 years old when she was given babysitting duties, whilst possibly sedated. Kids should be taught from a much younger age (as soon as they can crawl) to take care of themselves so their parents can enjoy 'me time'.

What's the point of having kids if your tied to them for years?

Blood and cadaver alerts

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
