Man threw boy, 2, from first floor window, shouting ‘Here, f****** have him’
A man has been jailed after he threw a two-year-old boy out of a first floor window, telling neighbours: “Here, f****** have him.”
Carl Keany, 29, was branded “immoral” and “horrific” after a judge said he drunkenly threw the child.
Judge Robert Egbuna sentenced Keany, from Newbold in Derbyshire, to two years and eight months in prison, Derbyshire Live reports.
He said: “Your acts towards the child were immoral, horrific and something that any right-thinking person would view as totally reprehensible.
“You were under the influence of a significant amount of alcohol.
“But you have shown remorse and it is clear that you are ashamed of your actions.”
Judge Egbuna also made a restraining order for Keany never to come into contact with the child again until that order is lifted.
Sarah Slater, prosecuting, outlined the case in court as it happened on August 14 this year.
At around 6.40pm, Keany had been drinking heavily at a nearby pub before he went to a house.
That house contained a two-year-old child.
A short time after, he could be heard inside the house shouting and screaming at the child victim.
He then became enraged and dangled the child from the window on the first floor of that house.
The distance was round six metres from the window to the floor, Miss Slater explained.
There were two people outside the house on the ground, who both pleaded for him to stop as he was endangering the child.
Miss Slater said: “They were shouting at him to take the child back inside, but he shouted: ‘Here, f****** have him’.
“He then flings him out of the window.”
Luckily, the people nearby were fast enough to catch the child before he hit the ground.
Police arrived at 6.55pm and tried to get into the house, but he had locked all windows and both the front and back doors.
Eventually, officers managed to arrest Keany and take him to the police station.
