The evil mother of Star Hobson has had her jail term increased to 12 years by Court of Appeal judges for allowing her toddler to be stamped to death by baby killer Savannah Brockhill.
Frankie Smith, 20, was jailed at Bradford Crown Court in December last year for her role in the death of her 16-month-old daughter, who was killed by Smith’s former partner Brockhill.
The 20-year-old was initially jailed for just eight years, however this has since been increased to 12.
Smith had begun her sentence at HMP New Hall, near Flockton, West Yorkshire, however, it has been reported that she will be moved to HMP Bronzefield in Surrey.
The prison has housed some of Britain's worst female criminals including Rose West, Baby P's mum Tracey Connelly and Joanna Dennehy.
Smith's sentence was referred to the Court of Appeal by the Attorney General for being unduly lenient. She was found guilty of causing or allowing Star's death at a trial at Bradford Crown Court.
Brockhill was convicted of murder and was given a 25-year sentence.
Star died after she was taken to hospital in September 2020, having suffered “utterly catastrophic” and “unsurvivable” injuries at Brockhill’s hands.
The 16-month-old tot died after Brockhill stamped on her following a campaign of “neglect, cruelty and injury”.
Brockhill, 28, a bouncer and security guard, was found guilty of Star’s murder, while Smith was found guilty of causing or allowing her death following a trial at Bradford Crown Court.
She is currently serving her sentence at HMP Styal in Cheshire, while Smith has been incarcerated at HMP New Hall.
Last week the Mirror reported that Smith is set for a 200-mile prison move after fellow lags told her: “Get out of Yorkshire.”
She had been placed in HMP New Hall, near Flockton, West Yorks, after being locked up for her role in the death of Star.
Star Hobson's evil mum sent 'uplifting' letters telling her to 'keep chin up' in jail
But she could now be moved to the other end of the country after threats from inmates.
A prison source said: “Smith is currently kept in her cell most of the time.
“She hasn’t been cleared to work due to threats from the other women.
“They can’t forgive her for the suffering that little girl went through.”
