A father in Britain has been found guilty of organizing an acid attack on his 3-year-old son. The boy suffered burns to his face and arms in the attack at a store in Worcester, England, in July of last year. The court was told the boy repeatedly screamed “I hurt” after being attacked. Prosecutors ruled the father, 40, recruited others in an attempt to “manufacture” evidence to discredit his estranged wife in a custody battle. The father admitted during the court case that he paid one of the attackers £500 after incident—though he claimed the money was to fund private investigators to follow his wife. In court, the father denied handing a small bottle to one of his co-accused on the day of the attack. Following a six-week trial, jurors convicted the father and five other men of involvement in the plot. A final defendant is facing similar charges but has yet to hear his verdict.
