Birkenhead dad convicted of breaking Baby's bones in violent 'shaking' incident just months after being jailed for beating puppy


First published 1 hour ago in News
by Lynda Roughley

A WIRRAL man was today convicted of causing a catalogue of injuries to his six-week-old son, including brain injuries.

Sean Cottrell was found by a jury to have broken the infant's right leg by picking him up by it and breaking two ribs while squeezing him. He then shook him so hard that his brain struck the inside of his skull causing bleeding and possible long term problems.

Unknown to the jury of nine women and three men Cottrell was jailed in August this year for 14 weeks for beating a four-month-old puppy so badly that it had to be put to sleep.

The 22-year-old Cottrell, of Park Road South, was convicted of two offences of causing grievous bodily harm to his son and one of inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent.

It had been alleged that he had also attacked the Baby in an earlier incident leaving him with fractures where six ribs meet the spine but the jury acquitted him of those grievous bodily harm charges.

Remanding him in custody until January to enable psychiatric and pre-sentence reports to be prepared Judge Robert Warnock said that the issue of Cottrell's dangerousness must be considered.


He told Cottrell, who showed no emotion, that a custodial sentence was inevitable.

During his week long trial Liverpool Crown Court heard that the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was born on May 26 last year and was admitted to Arrowe Park Hospital, Wirral, with the injuries when he was just six weeks old.

"These serious injuries were caused by the defendant twisting and pulling the complainant's leg and by compressing his chest in a squeezing action with enough force to break the ribs in the course of shaking him violently.

The injuries were a spiral feature to his right leg, fractures to the left sixth and seventh ribs, haemorrhaging within and around the brain tissues and fractures where six left ribs meet the spine.

The child lived with his mum, Carla, in Howson Street, Rock Ferry, Wirral, and Cottrell regularly stayed there. On July 9 Cottrell was alone with the child for 15 minutes and when the Baby's mum and grandmother, Carol, returned from the shops he was screaming, had a bruise to his lip with a spot of blood and a graze to his right elbow. When asked about that Cottrell said he did not know what had happened.

He was taken to hospital two days later after he shrieked when moved and as well as bruises to his right thigh and buttock, the other injuries were found.

Mr Stables said that the Baby now faces the risk of developmental problems, learning difficulties and behavioural problems though the future is currently unclear.

Cottrell denied inflicting injuries on the tot and claimed that they happened when he tripped over while holding him and fell on top of him. He said he had been too embarrassed to tell anyone and that if the injuries were deliberate Carla or Carol must have been to blame.

The jury took about five and a half hour to reject his claims about the July 9 incident. After the hearing the child's mum was in tears and comforted by a friend and mother.

Cottrell had pleaded guilty in July to causing unnecessary suffering to his defenceless Staffordshire bull terrier cross “Dexter" and failing to provide proper and necessary veterinary care and attention following the beating.

His cruelty was discovered after a neighbour heard blows and screaming coming from Cottrell's flat. He claimed he had hit it once because it misbehaved but a vet, who had to put it to sleep, likened its injuries to being hit by a car.

No suitable words to describe this lump of evil. Unbelievable to even know that such lumps even exist. It resembles a horror movie.
Should he ever be released is a very worrying prospect, as someone will get it, and it could be his own child again or the mother! They shouldn't have to live in fear of him coming back.

I agree with all the comments! Started on a poor animal then went on to hurt a child badly, he will do it again! Scum like him should be gone, waste of oxygen!

Only just seen that this chap got 11 years. He also caused his son brain injury. He should never be let out as prison is the punishment, it won't change his capabilities.
What I find difficult to understand, is how the legal profession can stand for the defence of these animals, when they are clearly guilty of vicious and horrific crimes

To the legal profession it is a power game to see who puts over the most powerful arguments. It always amazes me that defence lawyers try to get obviously guilty people off but that is their job and they have to do it to progress in the profession.
