Hutton shows no emotion

Hutton showed no emotion as she was led from the dock. Judge Roger Thomas QC said the children were found in a situation that was "breathtakingly awful". He told her:

The details of your wicked conduct have been displayed in such awful detail over the past three weeks in the trial that concluded yesterday ...

The offences demonstrate a most fundamental and serious breach of any duty that an individual in decent society can owe to others - namely the duty that a parent owes to her or his young children to take proper care of them.

– Judge Roger Thomas QC
