Outcomes of cases

Angela Gordon, the mother of Khyra Ishaq has been jailed for 15 years and Junaid Abuhamza (the mother's partner) has been sentenced to indefinite imprisonment but with a minimum term of seven and a half years.  Both were convicted of manslaughter.  Refusing to classify their appalling conduct as "neglect" (which, clearly, it went way beyond), Mr Justice Roderick Evans referred to their treatment of Khyra as "chilling in its harshness and cruelty".  The Independent 12th March.


Law and Laywers also referred to the case of Mr Nick Hogan jailed for non payment of fines imposed for breaches relating to the smoking ban in public houses.   It seems that money was raised from the public and that he has now been released.  Manchester Evening News 10th March 2010.
