In Ohio and other States, children continue to be the unfortunate victims of abuse and neglect at the hands of their parents, family friends, relatives, babysitters, teachers, and / or day care providers. Often times, a caregiver will present a child to an emergency room or a pediatrician and invent a story regarding how the injuries took place. When the history provided does not match the suspected mechanism of injury, state officials should be contacted to further investigate the injuries. The safety and best interests of the child are paramount to any other concerns or issues. Furthermore, a child, who is residing in a potentially abusive or neglected environment, should be removed and cared for in a safe and secure living situation.
In Ohio, it was reported that a Germantown man plead guilty to a count of child endangerment. The child, who was 5 weeks old at the time of the incident, suffered a fractured leg. See Man Who Broke Child’s Leg Received Prison Sentence.
