Suspended sentence for ex-husband of Baby P boss
"The ex-husband of shamed Baby P boss Sharon Shoesmith was convicted after being caught with a haul of child porn."
"Geoffrey Shoesmith, 67, was given a suspended 16-month jail term after he admitted making and possessing indecent images of children."
"It comes as Ms Shoesmith plans to cash in on the scandal that got her sacked from her role with Haringey Council, launching a book called Learning From Baby P."
"Baby P, real name Peter Connelly, died in Haringey, north London, in 2007 after suffering more than 50 injuries..."
"The offences are thought to have taken place between October 2008 and August 2014, after the pair split and there is no suggestion Ms Shoesmith knew about his offending."
"Today, a relative of the child told The Sun: 'Geoffrey Shoesmith’s conviction is ironic given her role at Haringey was meant to be to protect kids."
"The family is already very angry about her book."
