Mum who posted photo of son, two, stuck in a tumble drier on Facebook avoids jail

A MUM who posted a p1+6期跑狗图 hoto of her toddler son trapped in a tumble dryer on Facebook avoided jail yesterday. Katie Parker, 21, added the caption: “OMG, found my son in dryer! LMAO” [laughed my a*** off] after lover Oliver Smith, 17, put George, two, in the machine and shut the door. It was switched off. The boy’s father saw the picture on the internet and reported it to the police. Parker and Smith, of Ryde, Isle

of Wight, earlier pleaded guilty to ill-treating a child. Judge Andrew Barnett told them at the island’s crown court: “This is not a lo

ng saga of neglect, but an

irresponsible moment of madness. “It beggars belief that people can behave like this. “You both deserve to go to

jail but, mercifully, there

was no lasting harm


o the boy.” He sentenced Parker to six months’ jail, suspended for two years, and a supervision order. Smith received a

two-year youth rehabilit

ation order and a curfew.
