Dad of Sunderland baby Reggie faces jail after son was killed by family dog 


05 June 2017

A father has been told he will be jailed after his three-week-old baby son was mauled to death by the family's terrier. Ryan Young, 32, appeared at Newcastle Crown Court to admit being the owner of a dog which caused injury that was dangerously out of control. 


The charge related to baby Reggie Richardson, who was just 20 days old when he died as a result of his injuries at the family home in Falkland Road, Sunderland, on June 20 2015. A separate charge of neglect, which Young denied, will lie on file. 


Recorder Nicholas Lumley QC granted Young bail to allow for a psychological assessment to be carried out ahead of a pre-sentence report. The judge told him: "A prison sentence is inevitable. "You must not read anything into the fact that the case is being adjourned." 


The judge was told Young missed a pre-trial hearing on June 1. Caroline Goodwin, defending, told the judge: "He simply could not face coming to court, there is no greater excuse than that. "The defendant has had a very difficult time since the events of June 2015. "It has been an emotionally devastating, dreadful chapter in everyone's life." 


Young, wearing a blue ribbon on his grey suit, kept his head bowed for much of the hearing. The baby's mother, Maria Blacklin, was not in court. She had not been in the family home when the dog attacked their son as she was attending an event following a death in the family. The father will be sentenced at a later date. He carried his son's coffin at the funeral. During the service, Canon Provost Sheila Bamber said: "He was simply amazing in his perfection, absolutely gorgeous, a golden little boy who brought a ray of sunshine into your family.

That's a difficult call and I may not be best able to judge as I was attacked by my aunt's collie when I was four years old and has left me permanently wary of dogs of any size or shape.

This is such a tragic case though and I'm sure the father has suffered tremendously, I'm not sure what a jail term would provide in this case other than a form of revenge which is not what prison is designed to provide!

Glad it's not my call!

Dog's often get jealous of a new arrival....a dog owner would know and have seen that.

Where was the babe, where was the dog where was the dad and was he sober?

I cannot help but compare this tragedy with the Oxford student of a few weeks ago who a Judge thought did not deserve a jail sentence.

As my Mother would say "has he not suffered enough from something he will live with for the rest of his life"

Heard lots of rumours about this incident from people that live near the area.......not putting them on here as I don't know if there're true, but if the least worse rumour is, he deserves jail....maybe the truth will come out and we'll know one way or another....either way it's a terrible loss Sad

Yes, can only assume there is a lot more to the story that we don't know. Tragic either way Sad
