Sentencing for two Child, Youth and Family caregivers who abused a 2-year-old boy in their care who was treated for life-threatening hypothermia has been adjourned until next month.
On January 9, Eunice Towns pleaded guilty in the Whakatane District Court to a charge of causing grievous bodily harm and Stephen Towns to a charge of assault.
When the boy was treated at Whakatane Hospital for life-threatening hypothermia after being subjected to cold showers he had a total of 73 bruises and 10 abrasions on his body.
The couple were due to be sentenced in the Tauranga District Court today[18/02], but sentencing has been adjourned until March 26.
