Soldier Indicted For Abuse

A Fort Hood soldier was indicted for Injury To A Child in an incident involving his girlfriend's toddler. The child suffered life-threatening injuries while in his care.
"Apparently, the child made a significant recovery, but it was too early to tell if there will be permanent damage," Bledsoe said. "He suffered subdural hemorrhages and retinal hematomas."

The doctor told police the injuries were not consistent with an accidental injury, according to the affidavit. Source: Killeen Daily Herald

All too often, the mother's boyfriend are perpetrators of abuse. Since the boyfriend is often not the parent of the child, there is less emotional attachment to the child which increases the risk of abuse.
