When the police found an eight-year-old boy covered with bruises from head to toe, he was shaking and scared because he had been abused by his grandfather, including whipped cream.
Gregory Paul Quartermaine was sentenced to four and a half years in prison on Monday with no chance of conditional release after being guilty of conduct, knowing that it could harm a child taking care of him.
Quartermaine, 45, was the main caregiver for the boy and his younger brother when the abuse took place last August, heard the West Australian District Court Monday.

Judge Ronald Birmingham said the vulnerable boy had six broken ribs and had free fluid in his stomach.
& # 39; You saw it as a way to punish the child, & # 39; said the judge.
& # 39; The abuse was never addressed to his younger brother and that was indeed part of the abuse. & # 39;
The boy told the authorities that the abuse was repeatedly beaten, thrown into bushes, and duct tape placed over his mouth to keep him quiet.
He was also ordered to drink milk until he vomited and was forced to see his brother eat while he was hungry.
"You were unable to protect him by not bringing him to the hospital or urgently seeking medical help against the obvious injuries you inflicted," Judge Birmingham said.

& # 39; This was a young child who was vulnerable due to his age and the absence of stability in his life, support and housing. You were in a position of trust and authority. & # 39;
In his victim impact statement, the child said he was sleeping with the lights on because he was scared and also had anger problems.
The court heard that Quartermaine had a lengthy criminal record that caused him to spend years in prison and to fall back on the use of methylamfetamine.
