An Australian mother who beat her eight-month-old baby with kitchen utensils has avoided jail time, with the judge reasoning that the infant's injuries were "likely to resolve".

Lorien Norman, 26, called Adelaide police in October 2016 threatening to throw her baby, Evie, from a balcony. When police arrived they noticed bruising on the infant's face and body.

Norman denied causing the injuries, claiming Evie had a fall the day before, but later admitted violence.

A court examination concluded the infant had sustained "at least eight separate blows to her face and body" caused by a slotted wooden spoon and a hand.

While causing harm with intent carries a maximum sentence of 13 years behind bars, Norman walked out of court only having to pay a AU$500 (NZ$550) good behaviour bond.

She will be monitored by a community corrections officer for two years.

  Marco Pierre White took a sexist swipe at Sam Frost, and she wasn't having it. Gone are the days when the prerequisite for being wife material was a sound knowledge of kitchen utensils and a slow cooker. In 2017, it’s (for the most part) common knowledge a woman does not need to cook dinner for a man to maintain a relationship, rather he might cook for her or they might cook… together.However, it would seem TV chef Marco Pierre White didn’t quite get the memo, criticising Sam Frost’s man-keeping abilities based on a dodgy fillet of salmon on Monday night’s episode of Hell’s Kitchen.

Angela Gatt avoided jail after being caught having sex with a 14-year-old boy. "She faces hostility within her local community and she's lost some of her work." The mum -of-two was handed a 20-month suspended sentence at Carlisle Crown Court.

30-08-17 Lorien Norman, 26, of Adelaide (AUS) has been handed down a suspended ten-month sentence after pleading guilty to 'aggravated causing harm with intent to cause harm'. I'm not in any way condoning what she did. It's awful. But I don't see how jailing this woman helps.

Judge Costello told the court that "whist any assault of a child, particularly one of such a tender age and vulnerability, by a parent stands as a gross breach of trust, your offending is nevertheless far from the most serious of offending of this type in terms of the degree of force involved and the duration of the offending," The Independent reports.

"In this respect I particularly note the opinion of the treating paediatrician to the effect that there was no evidence of bony or intracranial injury and that your daughter's physical injuries were likely to completely resolve."

Evie's father now has full custody of her.
