Two British parents who tortured their own baby so badly that he lost both of his legs are set to be released early from prison after serving only half of their sentences.
Child abusing parents Anthony Smith, 47, and Jody Simpson, 24, were sentenced to serve ten years in prison in 2018, they have only served half of their sentences and are now due to be released.
Tony, who is now seven years old was horribly tortured by the pair and suffered from torn ligaments, broken fingers, and contracted sepsis due to his horrific treatment.
The young boy would have died if it was not for the doctors that worked tirelessly to save his life.
Paula Hudgell, 54, who adopted Tony, has called for the UK government to issue tougher punishments for those who abuse children.
Mrs Hudgell said that the early release of Tony's birth parents was "sickening" and it felt "like a blow to the stomach".
Speaking to The Mirror, Mrs Hudgell said: "These monsters have spent just five years behind bars while Tony faces a lifetime of challenges as a result of their wickedness. "They don't go before the parole board or have to show any remorse to walk free. It's like a blow to the stomach and makes me feel sick knowing those who abuse babies and children are walking free in a few years. "These monsters could be living in your street and you wouldn't have a clue."
She added that Tony was furious that his abusive birth parents would be released from prison and said that he dreamed of being a police officer when he grows up so he can re-arrest them.
It took extensive campaigning from Mrs Hudgell and MP Tom Tugendhat for the parents to be sentenced in the first place.
Mrs Hudgell campaigned for Tony's law that imposes longer sentences for those found to have caused "serious harm" to children.
The new law that was introduced means that those found guilty of causing the death of a child now face a minimum of 14 years in prison.
Tony won the Pride of Britain award for the amount of money he raised for the hospital that treated him when he was a baby.
