Man who left baby braindamaged jailed
A 27-year-old Dundee man who shook a baby girl so violently that she was left brain-damaged has been jailed for four years and eight months.
Dale Thomson admitted he attacked the child after getting “stressed” playing his Xbox.
A judge at the High Court in Glasgow heard Thomson had been looking after the girl on 1 April after her mother went to work.
Thomson later made a 999 call saying the girl’s eyes were “rolling” and that she was not breathing. He claimed to have found her “floppy” in her cot.
He pleaded guilty.
