A shamed police officer is facing jail
"A shamed police officer is facing jail after he admitted inflicting shocking cruelty on a very young child."
"Christopher Hamilton was a serving officer with Northumbria Police when he subjected the youngster to disgraceful acts of cruelty."
"His victim suffered a series of disturbing injuries as well as significant emotional abuse at the hands of the disgraced PC."
"Now Hamilton, who has since resigned from the force, has been warned he is likely to go to prison when he is sentenced next month for his horrifying crimes."
"A court heard the child suffered burns to its hands and bruising."
"And in a sickening twist, Hamilton left the victim distraught and in tears after making a video in which he forced the youngster to say hurtful things about its family members. The court was told the young child was left so stressed by the ordeal, chunks of its hair fell out."
