Face of Sheffield man who almost walked free despite breaking baby’s arm

This is the face of a Sheffield man who broke a 10-week-old baby boy’s arm and ribs who was almost allowed to walk free.

Andrew Newton, of Parson Cross, fractured the baby boy’s left upper arm and right thigh when he could not stop the child crying in an incident in 2019.

He also broke three ribs in a separate incident.

Incredibly, Newton was spared from immediately going to jail after he pleaded guilty to cruelty, and was handed a suspended sentence.
