Three people have been convicted of seriously neglecting two young boys in Telford
Three people have been convicted of seriously neglecting two young boys in Telford.
Darren Paisley, 39, and Serena Sibson-Bartram, 34, both of Telford, were found guilty yesterday (Wednesday 9 February) at Shrewsbury Crown Court.
Samantha Paisley, 35, also of Telford, had previously pleaded guilty.
They were bailed to be sentenced at Shrewsbury Crown Court on 1 April.
Following a report of concern from one of the boy’s schools in 2018, a joint investigation began between West Mercia Police and Telford and Wrekin Children’s Services.
It was discovered that the three defendants seriously mistreated two boys, including denying them food and forcing them to stand in stress positions for hours on end.
The boys were offered the full support of Telford and Wrekin Children’s Services and are now living in a safe family home.
The defendants were arrested in May 2018 and subsequently charged.
Darren Paisley was charged with six counts of child neglect between February 2004 and March 2018.
Sibson-Bartram was charged with five counts of child neglect between February 2004 and March 2018.
Samantha Paisley was charged with three counts of child neglect between February 2014 and March 2018 and later pleaded guilty.
Detective Inspector Jo Delahay said: “This was a tremendously cruel crime committed against two innocent young boys by people who should have been caring and protecting them.
“Thankfully, together with Telford and Wrekin Children’s Services, we were able to bring the boys to safety.
“We are very grateful to the school for raising their concerns and hopefully the boys can now move on with their lives.
“We urge anyone with any concerns about the welfare of a child to please get in touch.”

Should be named and shamed then hanged
So once again its taken YEARS for social services to act?
Constantly letting our children down.
Is it only certain people that will comprehensively get investigated by these services?
Why has it taken 4 years to get to this conviction and not even sentenced yet.
Well done to authorities

What are the authorities doing these day’s plus family friends neighbours and schools shame on them all .?
Those poor children being cruelly treated for all that time and by not two but three people who should have been protecting and nurturing them.
Lock them up and throw away the key.
Social service are a shambles. Pick on easy cases. True cases get pushed aside. From 2004 . should be sacked. And face charges as well.
Poor boys, I hope they’re being well looked after now and being given appropriate mental health support.
