Stephen Waterson Wiki – Stephen Waterson Bio

Stephen Waterson, the ‘arrogant’ son of a former Tory minister jailed for more than seven years in 2019 for crushing his girlfriend’s three-year-old son to death with his car seat, has been released from prison.

Waterson was returning home after shopping in South London when he reversed his electronic car seat onto Alfie Lamb, who was sitting at his mother’s feet in the footwell behind.


He is 30 years old.

Incident Details

The child began crying and choking, but his mother, Adrian Hoare, told him to ‘shut up’ before Waterson put the seat forward again. When the trio arrived at Waterson’s home in Croydon, south London, Alfie had collapsed and stopped breathing.

He died at St Thomas’ Hospital in South London from catastrophic brain damage on February 4, 2018, three days after the sickening incident.

Waterson was not due for release until 2023 and remains on license until 2025, after being jailed at the Old Bailey for manslaughter and perverting the course of justice by lying to police and intimidating witnesses.

But the child killer, who was 26 at the time of Alfie’s death, has now been released early after serving just over three years in jail.

Released From Jail

Usually, a seven-year sentence means the defendant must spend two-thirds in jail before being released on license. But Waterson would have spent time in prison while awaiting trial, which could be considered when looking at early release.

Hoare was jailed for two years and nine months in May 2019. She was offered early release just five months later, but her license was revoked, and she was taken back into custody in May 2020.

A source close to the family said they only had notification Waterson was out after he’d been freed. The Ministry of Justice has been approached for comment over why he has been released early.

Waterson, the adopted son of former Tory MP Nigel Waterson, described by police as ‘arrogant, selfish and deeply unpleasant,’ then tried to avoid prosecution by repeatedly lying and intimidating witnesses.

He denied manslaughter during an earlier trial in which the jury could not reach a verdict before pleading guilty on the first day of his retrial.

Old Bailey judge Mr Justice Timothy Kerr told Waterson that he was ‘manipulative, dishonest, deceitful, controlling, threatening, and sometimes violent during sentencing.
