2 year old bit, bashed and scratched by his own Mum

A woman who bit, scratched and bashed her toddler, saying “he’s used to it”, has been jailed for four years.

South Australian District Court Judge Paul Muscat has described the 22-year-old’s conduct as unfathomable and criticised authorities for not acting on 19 notifications about the two year olds treatment.

The boy is now in state care and is likely to stay there until he turns 18.
