This is the disgusting scene of a Doncaster toddler’s bedroom which brought a mother and father to court on child neglect charges.
Kerry Rybak, 27, and Darren Stanley, 26, from Bentley, were handed a 16 month sentence suspended for two years on Tuesday after both pleading guilty at an earlier hearing.
Judge Sarah Wright said their two-year-old child showed signs of ’emotional and physical’ neglect in this ‘awful’ case.
The photos, released by the Crown Prosecution Service and South Yorkshire Police, shows a scarce room filled with a filthy bare mattress and faeces covering the walls.
The window is covered up by two bits of broken bed frame which is holding down a grimy black curtain. Wrappers are also scattered on the floor of the unkempt room.
Both must take part in a rehabilitation order.
Sheffield Crown Court heard Doncaster Council social workers entered the property in Bentley because Rybak was pregnant and had ‘not made sufficient contact’ with social services.
Ian West, prosecuting, said the two-year-old in question, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was found wandering around the house in a ‘t-shirt with no nappy on’ and the downstairs of the home was in a ‘state’.
“From the initial assessment, social workers became increasingly concerned and followed up an inspection of the house,” Mr West said.
