    Mason Jet Lee.

    William Andrew O’Sullivan was sentenced to nine-years imprisonment for the death of 22-month-old Mason Jet Lee but will be eligible for parole in less than four years.
    The toddler was found with extensive injuries at O’Sullivan’s home in Caboolture, north of Brisbane, in June 2016.


    The sentence was kept a secret for a week out of concern for co-accused, Mason’s mother Annemarree Lee, the Courier Mail reported.
    The young boy was so severely beaten he suffered anal injuries, a broken leg and a ruptured intestine, spending the last of his days vomiting, feverish and dehydrated.
    O’Sullivan failed to assist the toddler in his last days, instead yelling at him to ‘shut up’ when he cried as well as hitting and kicking him.

    Founder of Bravehearts, a leading child protection organisation in Australia, Hetty Johnson said the inadequate sentence proves the system is failing children.
    ‘How can you kill a child and walk away after four years? It just defies any kind of logic, it doesn’t set any example,’ Ms Johnston said.
    ‘I think they need to throw the whole sentencing regime out the window and start again.’



    The Queensland Opposition’s child safety spokeswoman Ros Bates said the system needs an overhaul.
    ‘I’m sure that the public don’t think that a sentence that lenient is sufficient for what that little boy went through,’ she said.
    The state’s attorney-general has a 28-day window to lodge an appeal into the judgement.
    ‘As with all cases, DPP are looking at the judgement and will advise the attorney-general whether there are any prospects for appeal,’ a spokesperson said in a statement.
    The Attorney-General has been left with a small window to fight for a longer sentence as seven days are already gone.
    O’Sullivan pleaded guilty to four separate charges before the Queensland Supreme Court, including manslaughter and cruelty to a child under 16-years-old.

    Defence barrister Ruth O’Gorman said O’Sullivan has been bashed unconscious by another inmate, since being in custody.
    She said he was forced to spend 13 days in hospital with a fractured skull after prisoners bashed, kicked and stomped him severely.

    Well I would call that just a tiny piece of justice (for a huge POS)!

    OMG, what he did to that poor little boy . That had to be such a painful, agonising death. I cannot fathom how anybody could be so cruel, and to a baby no less.
