Latvian woman gets suspended sentence for throwing child against wall

A Latvian woman who threw her partner’s six-year-old child against a wall and beat him with a mop while she was drunk has received a two-and-a-half year suspended sentence.

The 25-year-old woman, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the child, initially told gardaí she had no idea how the child got the injuries. She was minding him at the time when the boy’s father was at work.

She later admitted to gardaí that she drank three bottles of wine that night and was upset and angry.

She said she went to the boy’s room while he was sleeping and started to punch him. She then dragged him from his room into her own bedroom, where she threw him against a wall and he hit his head off a radiator.

She brought the child downstairs where she told gardaí she continued to hit him with a mop.
