The defendant was charged with Section 18 and child cruelty x2. Following a trial at Nottingham Crown Court, K was acquitted of the more serious offences of Section 18 Grievous Bodily Harm with intent, which carries a life sentence, but convicted of the less serious offence of Section 20 Grievous Bodily Harm without intent. As a result, he received a 3 1/2 year custodial sentence. The defendant in this case required robust cross-examination of the Crown’s Paediatric experts.
