Imagine locking your kids in a room and leaving them unattended just so you can go to a hotel and screw a random stranger. Think it’s unlikely? Think again:
A mother who locked her three young children in a bedroom with some toilet paper and a bucket as she met her new boyfriend for sex at the Holiday Inn has been jailed for 18 months.
The 32-year-old locked them away on her eldest son’s seventh birthday as she left for the Holiday Inn Express in Burnley, Lancashire.
I have no problem with the jailing, of course, except insofar as the sentence did not include the words “daily floggings” and “mandatory sterilization”.
Go ahead. Change my mind.
