A man has been jailed for 20 years for causing life-changing injuries to a 10-week old baby girl in his care.

The 33-year-old man from Clacton appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court for sentencing today alongside a 25-year-old woman, also from Clacton, neither of whom can be named for legal reasons.

The man was convicted of GBH with intent and neglect at Chelmsford Crown Court in July while the woman previously admitted neglecting the baby girl.

Police were contacted by Essex Social Care after the child was admitted to Colchester General Hospital on August 10, 2013.

Investigating officer Ds Kerrie Katinas said: “This heinous crime committed against an innocent, defenceless baby left her with life changing injuries.

The woman’s sentencing hearing was adjourned for three weeks.
