Officers Have Never Seen A House Like This, Become Physically Ill (Photos)

A mom in Australia recently pled guilty to four charges of cruelty and negligence. The Brisbane mum was eventually sentenced to 12 months in jail.

It seems that neighbors called authorities back in the summer of 2014 after the woman's two-year-old was seen standing naked on a window sill. Witnesses say the child was banging against the glass and yelling.

Apparently the single mom actually made it home before police arrived, wearing a black dress and high heels. The woman then lied to police, saying the children had been supervised by family when actually no one was home.

Not surprisingly, the neighbors called police again the next day after the toddler was seen at the window for several hours again.

When police came to the home this time, the four-year-old answered the door wearing a dirty diaper.

According to a police report, officers had to force their way inside the home when the child could not work the safety lock.

Police discovered the mom asleep in the bedroom.

The officers testified that the home was filled with putrid garbage, and food and feces were found on the floor in the kitchen and on the children's mattresses which were soaked with urine.

The report notes the mom was hostile towards the officers, but she followed their request to bathe the children. The kids had to be dressed in dirty clothes because there were no clean clothes available.

Medical exams showed the siblings were suffering from chronic diarrhea. The children also showed signs of disturbed eating behaviors, such as eating off the floor, and were both developmentally delayed.

The mother’s defense attorney noted that although the woman did not have a mental illness at the time of the offense, she was and remained “psychologically vulnerable.”

Of note, the siblings are currently in the care of their maternal grandmother, but the Department of Child Protection is considering reunification with the mother at some point in the future.
