Three charged for assault of their children: ODPP

Three individuals are facing separate charges for allegedly assaulting their children.

The ages of these children range from two to 16 years.

In one of the incidents, a 43-year-old woman allegedly hit her 16-year-old daughter with a mop handle multiple times.

The woman is charged with one count of an act with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to her daughter.

In another incident, a 25-year-old man is charged with assault causing actual bodily harm to his 2-year-old son.

A 38-year-old man was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm to his 15-year-old stepdaughter.

These people are among the 33 people who have been charged with allegedly committing serious crimes, including murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, theft, assault causing actual bodily harm, acts with intent to cause grievous harm, criminal intimidation, attempted unlawful exportation of illicit drugs, damaging property, and breach of a suspended sentence.

This information was filed by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution in the High Court last month.

There were 26 victims of the 33 counts of serious offences.
