    On Friday 26th October 2018 Craig Williams was sentenced at Leeds Crown Court to three years and four months imprisonment following the sad death of a seven months old baby.

    The Circumstances | Kangs Regulatory and Director Disqualification Team

    • the sad death resulted from the baby getting caught within the frame of the bed designed, manufactured and supplied by Williams.
    • Williams was charged with gross negligence manslaughter, which he denied , and during the course of his Trial the Prosecution agreed to accept a plea to an offence of breaching section 3 of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
    • following the baby’s death, Trading Standards issued a Cease and Desist Warning to stop the manufacture and supply of the beds.
    • however, it appeared that Williams failed to comply and continued to trade through a different entity.
    • the court sentenced him to 19 months imprisonment in respect of the guilty plea to the section 3 offence and 21 months for fraud to run consecutively, making a total of 3 years and 4 months imprisonment.
    • Williams was also disqualified from holding the office of company director for a period of 10 years.
