Lawyers representing Baby P's 'stepfather' have confirmed they are considering an appeal against his conviction for raping a two-year-old girl.
Tim Bittlestone, of Leslie Franks Solicitors, said: "We will go through the process with this client as we do with every client.
"We presented his defence fearlessly as we are required to do so by the rules and now we will consider the possibilities with him as to any appeal as we do with all defendants."
Legal sources suggested any appeal could focus on the age of the victim, who was the prosecution's main witness.
She was just four when she testified at the Old Bailey via videolink and questions have been raised about basing a prosecution on the evidence of such a young witness.
The defendant is facing a life sentence after his conviction for the rape on Friday.
Baby P's mother denied a cruelty charge involving the same girl and was found not guilty by the jurors, who had no idea they were trying the couple in the Baby P case.
The 32-year-old's victim, like Baby P, was on Haringey council's at risk register.
The defendant, who Baby P knew as 'Dad', was convicted with lodger Jason Owen, 36, of causing or allowing Baby P's death last November. Baby P's mother, 27, pleaded guilty to the same charge.
The child, whose first name was Peter, was found dead in his blood-spattered cot with a broken back and fractured ribs. He had 50 injuries and died despite having had 60 contacts with health and social workers over the final eight months of his life.
