Two sentenced for assault on baby - Bracknell

26/10/2012

Two people have today, Friday, 26 October 2012, been sentenced at Reading Crown Court after a baby suffered serious injuries in Bracknell.

A 28-year-old man was jailed for 2-years after being found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH), and child neglect at an earlier court hearing. A 22-year-old woman was given a 12-month community order after being found guilty of child neglect. They cannot be identified for legal reasons.

The charges relate to an incident in March last year where a 7-month-old girl was taken to hospital with a number of fractures to her legs.
