Father guilty of acid attack plot against three-year-old son

A father has been convicted at Worcester Crown Court of helping to launch an acid attack on his three-year-old son.

The father of a 3-year-old British boy who suffered serious burns to his face and arms in an acid attack last summer has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for orchestrating the whole incident.

The guilty man wanted more access to his children so wanted to prove his wife was not fit to take care of their children, the BBC reports, so created a plan to injure a child in her care so he could take custody.

It came after his wife left him, taking their three children, in 2016.

Jonathan Rees QC said the father was the "driving force" behind the attack. "The family had been shopping for a birthday present". However, the child "was left scarred for life as a result of this attack", according to a police report.

He nevertheless welcomed the verdict and noted that the perpetrators will spend a combined total of 78 years in prison.

A six-week trial at Worcester Crown Court was told that the youngster, who can not be identified due to his age, suffered serious injuries to his face and arm at a Home Bargains store in the city.

CCTV also showed Pulko carrying what the court heard was a bottle of acid while walking next to the mother and her two sons.

Passing sentence, Judge Robert Juckes said "even battle-hardened crown court judges were sickened when they heard the news that someone had attacked a three-year-old with sulphuric acid", said Juckes, calling it a "monstrous breach of trust".

Superintendent Damian Pettit described the attack as "horrific" and said the boy's scars "will prove a constant reminder of that very bad day".

Jurors also convicted co-conspirators Adam Cech, Jan Dudi, Norbert Pulko, Jabar Paktia, and Saied Hussini of plotting to spray sulphuric acid on the boy with intent to cause harm.

Worcester crown court was told the 40-year-old father, a former factory worker and taxi driver who can not be named, arranged the attack to discredit his wife.

The court is still considering a seventh defendant, Martina Badiova.
