The judge said: "It's clear to me that you (Boleyn) and your fellow defendant were incapable of looking after yourselves let alone a child... There were bruises to his skull, which had been inflicted by up to ten individual blows. There were marks on his legs and grazes to his face. He had been grabbed forcibly around the jaw and slapped and punched... These were not in isolation. There were further assaults to his lower back and buttocks on which there was extensive bruising... It really was a case where the jury saw injuries from top to toe. He (Ryan) would have suffered emotionally and physically and he would have needed comfort but you mocked him... You were unable to keep your own lives under control without smoking cannabis and alcohol and you took your petty grievances out on this boy because you regarded him as hyper-active and out of control."
