'Appallingly bad' father jailed.

September 17, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

A judge has jailed a man he described as “an appallingly bad father” for two years and nine months for assaulting and neglecting his children. The 37-year-old man, who has name suppression, was earlier convicted on four charges of assaulting two of his children and one of wilful neglect. The High Court at Auckland had been told the father of eight had assaulted his 12-year-old daughter with repeated blows with a broom and punches to the stomach. He also punched one of his sons in the stomach.

Hopefully some of his fellow inmates will give him a taste of his own medicine.

    He should go away for longer than that, and never have contact with his children again.
