Augusta Man Found Guilty of Child Abuse of Infant Son
AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - A Crimora man could see some time behind bars for hurting his 18-day-old son.
On Thursday, an Augusta County judge found 24-year-old Dakota Allen Fox guilty of child abuse. In January of this year, Fox's infant son was treated for a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain.
According to multiple witnesses, including the mother, Fox said the baby's head may have hit a Yeti cup as Fox was trying to sit on the couch. A medical expert testified that Fox's claim wasn't consistent with the trauma.
Fox is scheduled for sentencing on January 28. He is currently out on bond.
