Friday, September 23rd, 2016, Aberdeen, Scotland.
A man avoided jail yesterday/today (FRI) for assaulting a newborn baby in his care.
Mark Riley, 19, repeatedly seized the child, who was only weeks old at the time, by the legs and lifted the youngster up.
This caused the child's head and body to dangle unsupported.
And on another occasion he twisted the baby's leg to the tot's severe injury.
