Jacob Lennon Parents
Louise Lennon, the mother of 32-year-old Jacob Lennon, received a 10-year prison term for failing to provide for his safety. Jake Drummond, Louise’s heroin addict boyfriend, was sentenced to at least 32 years in jail for fatally shaking and hitting the young child.
Jake Drummond, 33, reportedly used cocaine and smoked up to 15 cannabis spliffs every day. Weeks before Jacob Lennon passed away in August 2019, the horrific abuse started.
According to testimony submitted at the pair’s March trial at the Old Bailey, Drummond is accused of causing an extensive variety of injuries to Jacob’s face, body, and genitalia three weeks before his passing.
In court testimony, it was said that Jacob’s mother did nothing to shield him. Even so, she cracked jokes with Drummond. The pair denied any misconduct and laid the burden for Jacob’s injuries squarely on one another. Lennon said she was “coerced and threatened,” but Drummond insisted he wasn’t to responsible for Jacob’s wounds.
