Ashamed: Emily Harbour
A ‘mother’ who left her two young children ‘home alone’ surrounded by excrement and rotting food has avoided jail despite an appalling case of child neglect.
Emily Harbour, 22, left her 14-month-old baby boy and his four-year-old brother to fend for themselves for 90 minutes while she visited a boyfriend.
Police were confronted with a sickening stench as they forced their way past bags of rubbish, soiled nappies and blood-stained blankets when they broke into the house in Newbury, Berkshire.
At first they thought the baby was dead when they found him lying in a cot with a dirty old curtain over his face. However, he was still breathing.
Among the filth surrounding him, they found a sex toy as well as urine and human excrement.
When officers found his four-year-old brother hiding under a duvet in a room littered with junk, he told them: ‘Mummy says I am old enough to look after myself.’
Dark-haired Harbour, who looked much younger than her years, was allowed to walk free from court after being given a six month jail sentence suspended for two years for the child cruelty offences.
Where was she?
At her boyfriend’s house to use his computer to look for a new home as they were being evicted in a matter of days.
Sure she was…Not on the nest away from the crap-hole she created?
On a personal note… if that’s her idea of how to live I dread to think what her personal hygiene is like… sex with that? Yeeechhh…
Well, when you have idiots like this in charge of kids, is it any wonder they grow up to be selfish, losers, no hoper’s?
I note with interest this is the SECOND time it has happened and that health visitors were concerned that they hadn’t seen the kids for sometime!
The kids should be put into foster care away from her… they may have a chance then… instead of poor granny… they may have a chance of growing up without being screwed up kids without role models…
PS don’t laugh too loudly… you are giving her £900-per month… lol
