A Woman Says She Has Been Told To Choose Between Her Unborn Child Or Her Convicted Paedophile Husband

She tells the Sunday Echo : “It’s an impossible choice”.
It says the woman's husband was "convicted in 2009 of possessing 100,000 indecent images of children".
The woman and the man, who have asked not to be named, apparently met last summer after he gave her his number in a coffee shop. They told the paper the man told her about his offence, for which he served 15 months in prison, on their first date. She's now eight months pregnant with his child.
I've never been involved with someone with a criminal past. I was shocked and disgusted [...] I think it's despicable what he did but he was remorseful when he told me. I understand he is sorry about what he did and I believe he would never do anything again.
Throughout the pregnancy the couple have had meetings with social workers, who have now compiled a report detailing their concerns about the baby's safety. The document states that social services plan to take the issue before the courts once the child has been born. It advises Mr X should not let be left alone with the baby, meaning the mum-to-be faces a choice of being with her baby or her husband.
