A shameless mum, who left her sick child to die while she indulges in a marathon sex with a man she barely knew, has avoided jail.
According to Mirror.co.uk, 32 year old, Yvonne Adkins, abandoned her three-month-old baby, Chantelle, lying in a baby rocker, as she had a boozy nine-hour sex session with a man she met at a bus stop just two weeks earlier.
A court sitting heard she drank whisky before romping with her lover, known only as Peter, while her poor daughter was downstairs at her home in Meir, Stoke-on-Trent, England.
It was learnt that she woke up the next morning – on May 8 – to find her baby dead in her rocker in the lounge, dressed only in a tracksuit with no blanket or bed clothes.
However, the shameless mum pleaded guilty to cruelty of a child at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court yesterday. But she was spared jail after being given 18 months in prison, suspended for two years, with 18 months supervision.
The Judge, David Fletcher said: “Your desire to engage in some sexual activity with someone you hardly knew resulted in you leaving your child downstairs when you knew it was not appropriate to do that.
“You made a catastrophic decision that you will have to live with for the rest of your life.”
According to information gathered, Chantelle had suffered numerous health problems since she was born in January last year and was due to see a consultant the following month.
The prosecutor, Andrew Easteal, told the court: “Chantelle was placed in a baby rocker on the floor in the living room between 7.30pm and 8.30pm on May 7.
“A man called Peter arrived at 8.45pm. He was someone she became acquainted with at a bus stop two weeks prior.
“At 10pm the defendant and Peter went upstairs.
“The two had sexual intercourse and drank whisky and she fell asleep.
“The defendant was well aware her three-month-old daughter suffered from reflux and vomiting and other complications.
“Chantelle was due to see a consultant on June 15.”
It is reported that she started sending texts at 7.13am and at 7.27am after she discovered her daughter was cold and not breathing.
Paramedics were called in but were unable to resuscitate the child. Chantelle was pronounced dead at 8.05am.
A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a “sudden and unexpected death in infancy”.
