CHILDREN abusers could end up facing life in prison under new legislation debated in Parliament today.
This law was inspired by Tony Hudgell, who lost both legs after being tortured.
Jody Simpson’s biological mother and boyfriend Anthony Smith only spent 10 years in prison.
Tony’s law would see the maximum term for causing or permitting the death of a child to be increased from 14 years to life.
Causing or allowing serious physical harm and abuse of a child, shall be between the ages of ten and 14.
Tony’s adoptive mother, Paula Hudgell, from West Malling, Kent, said that means “monsters stay behind bars longer”.
Tony, now seven years old, has learned to walk with a prosthetic leg.
Paula also urged Number 10 to create a national list of child abusers, similar to the sex offender registry.
Ministers say they are considering the plan
