29 year old Joshua Michael Morris, formerly of Old Colwyn, was sentenced to 42 months’ imprisonment today (Weds 9th December) at Mold Crown Court for assaulting a 10 month old baby in January 2018.

A jury delivered their unanimous ‘guilty’ verdict after a seven day trial that ended on the 11th of November 2020.

Detective Chief Inspector Sion Williams, who led the investigation, said: ‘Sadly and frankly, no punishment can ever compensate for the life-changing brain injury that this little character sustained during this dreadful incident.’

DCI Williams added: ‘What appears to have been a momentary act of violence has devastatingly changed this young child’s future, and they will now require life-long professional care.

‘Thankfully, this little one is now experiencing life within a loving and nurturing family environment, supported by a number of dedicated and passionate professionals.
