Northampton man convicted of child cruelty

A Northampton man has today been convicted of child cruelty against a seven-year-old boy.

Jamie Jex, 28, of Wellingborough Road, Northampton, appeared before Northampton Crown Court on Monday, February 25, for sentencing having previously pleaded guilty to a charge of child cruelty.

In March 2018, Jex used excessive force on the boy, throwing him against a wall, causing serious injuries requiring hospitalisation.

Jex was sentenced to a 12 month community order and must complete 20 sessions of a thinking skills programme. In addition, he must carry out 20 day rehabilitation activity and pay an £85 victim surcharge.

Detective Constable Paul Lilley, from the Child Protection Team, said: “It is a relief that Jex pleaded guilty and prevented the poor child from going through the ordeal of a trial. The victim has suffered tremendously and hopefully now he can try and recover from the trauma.”
