Child abuse father jailed
Friday 22 July 1994
Social workers were alerted by neighbours to sexual abuse and cruelty suffered by three girls aged 15, 5 and 3 and an 18-month-old boy at their home near Ashington, Northumberland.
The children were placed in foster care where the youngest two children ate food from a bowl put out for a dog, Newcastle Crown Court was told.
The man, 41, had admitted cruelty and indecently assaulting the two eldest girls. His wife, 40, who also admitted cruelty, will be sentenced after a psychiatric report is prepared.
