The toddler was rushed to the local emergency room after his mother returned home from work and found her child burned, the Mail adds. Sousa also told WABI-TV he doesn’t agree with the charges of aggravated assault being brought against the man who did this to his son, saying “it sounds more

The court also found him guilty of culpable and reckless conduct concerning an earlier incident that saw him put the child in the tumble dryer while her mother was present.

The girl's mother told the court she heard a "thud" and turned around to see her daughter inside the machine with the door closed.

Referring to the later assault, Sheriff Alastair Brown told Dunn he "must have hit that little girl extremely hard at least twice" to inflict what were potentially life-threatening injuries.

He said it was "only by her good fortune and perhaps yours" that Dunn was not tried at the High Court on a charge of murder.

The toddler's mother, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, said she had let her Dunn take care of her child on three occasions because she had been finding it difficult to cope. She said: "I felt like he was a support at that time."

A man who put a 13-month-old baby girl in a tumble dryer and turned it on will stand trial for "endangering the life" of the child. 25-year-old Thomas Dunn, who is is accused of assaulting the baby and endangering her life twice in a span of three weeks last winter, was arraigned before a judge

Adam Morton, a New Hampshire man who put his girlfriend’s toddler into a running clothes dryer , pleaded guilty to assault on Tuesday. Sousa also says he doesn’t agree with the charges of aggravated assault being brought against the man who did this to his son.

She left her child with Dunn, of Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, on the day of the assault while she visited a friend, the court heard.

The mother later received contact saying the girl had bumped into her buggy and had a bleeding nose.

He sent a message to her, which read: "I'm just raging as I thought she was chilling watching Paw Patrol then I heard the thud."

Dunn, who denied hitting the girl, later contacted the girl's mother to say he was taking the child to a minor injuries unit because she did not seem well after her nap and was "flopping to one side". He also said he noticed a small lump on her head.

An ambulance was called and an examination at hospital revealed two fractures to her skull.

Dunn's defence advocate Niall McCluskey said the tumble dryer incident had been a "stupid piece of tomfoolery", although he added that he did not wish to diminish the charge.

Sheriff Brown said: "The jury have found you guilty of behaving towards (the child) with utter indifference to her safety and I interpret their verdict as meaning that ... you assisted her into the tumble dryer and closed the door on her, when what you ought to have been doing, as any responsible adult, was stopping her from going in, in the first place."

The sheriff said he would refer the case to the High Court because he did not feel his sentencing powers were adequate to punish the "monstrous" assault and the tumble dryer charge.

Two further charges of assault, one on the girl and another on a young boy, were dropped.
