A 29 year old man formerly of Old Colwyn has been sentenced today after being found guilty for assaulting a 10 month old baby.

Joshua Michael Morris, was sentenced to 42 months at Mold Crown Court.

A jury delivered their unanimous verdict after a seven day trial that ended on the 11th of November 2020.

Detective Chief Inspector Sion Williams, who led the investigation, said: ‘Sadly and frankly, no punishment can ever compensate for the life-changing brain injury that this little character sustained during this dreadful incident.’

DCI Williams added: ‘What appears to have been a momentary act of violence has devastatingly changed this young child’s future, and they will now require life-long professional care.

‘Thankfully, this little one is now experiencing life within a loving and nurturing family environment, supported by a number of dedicated and passionate professionals.’
