Man indicted on child abuse charges | Crime
Florence, AL (WAFF) - A man from Florence is indicted on child abuse charges.
According to investigators, 25 year old Jarrod Tyler Osborn was left alone with a 10 month old boy in July of last year. When the child's mother picked him up, there were bruises on the child's face and marks on his abdomen. The mother took the child to a doctor, who forwarded the case to police.
Osborn was arrested in July, and claimed the child was just learning to walk, and suffered the injuries after walking into a table and falling down.
A Lauderdale County Grand Jury disagreed and sent the case on for a trial.
Osborn is free on $5,000 bail. A trial date hasn't been set.
