    New Guidelines | Child Cruelty Offences | Kangs Serious Crime Solicitors

    As from 1st January 2019, new guidelines published by the Sentencing Council for offences of Child Cruelty came into operation for offences sentenced on or after that date, regardless of the date of the offence, affecting all offenders aged eighteen years and older.

    Cagin Husnu of Kangs Solicitors comments upon the changes.

    The Offences | Kangs Offences Against Children Advisory Solicitors

    The guidance is broken down in to three separate offences:

    • cruelty to a child;
    • causing or allowing a child to die or suffer serious physical harm; and
    • failing to protect a girl from risk of genital mutilation

    Cruelty To A Child

    • this offence covers assault, ill treatment, abandonment, neglect and failure to protect children.
    • it is an ‘either-way’ offence, meaning it can be tried in both the Magistrates’ Court or, for more serious cases, the Crown Court.
    • the maximum sentence is one of ten years imprisonment.

    Causing Or Allowing A Child To Die Or Suffer Serious Physical Harm

    Effectively, this constitutes two separate offences:

    Causing Or Allowing A Child To Suffer Serious Physical Harm

    • this offence can only be tried by judge and jury in the Crown Court
    • the maximum sentence is ten years imprisonment.

    Causing Or Allowing A Child To Die

    • this offence also can only be tried by judge and jury in the Crown Court
    • the maximum sentence is fourteen years imprisonment.

    Failing To Protect A Girl From Risk Of Genital Mutilation

    • this offence can only be tried by judge and jury in the Crown Court
    • the maximum sentence is seven years imprisonment.
