You see that POS (Piece Of Shit) up there? That’s Mark James Nelson age 32. Seems that he had a fight with his girlfriend so he decided to SQUEEZE her 6-week-old baby to relieve his frustration over the fight. He broke 22 of the baby’s ribs, doctors counted 37 fractures altogether and the baby had internal bleeding, bruising to the baby’s liver and eye trauma!
Let’s backtrack and go over the whole story. Nelson told investigators that he squeezed the baby until he heard cracking describing the sound as being similar to a cracking wrist. He also said he did not tell the child’s mother what he had done. The complaint says that the baby stopped breathing twice on August 21st and that Nelson got him to breathe again by plugging the baby’s nose and breathing into his mouth twice but he still didn’t want to call an ambulance. Nelson told the police he only planned to call 911 if he could not get the boy to breathe again, but he did not tell anyone about what happened because he did not want anyone to know.
According to the mother, she became concerned for her son when she picked him up and “he felt crunchy” and had redness in his eyes however Nelson urged her not to take the boy to the doctor because his appetite was normal and “he would get better.” She said her boyfriend had been staying with her since August 18th and helping her take care of the child. The child was originally taken to the hospital and seen for respiratory failure. Initially doctors believed he may have had pneumonia until a chest x-ray revealed the fractured ribs. That’s when doctors began to suspect abuse. Doctors also found he had lost a significant amount of blood to internal bleeding and the nearly 10 pound boy needed blood transfusions.
Nelson faces charges of first degree assault with a maximum penalty of 20 years and/or a fine of up to $30,000. Nelson is not the boy’s father and had reportedly been dating the mother since she was 4 months pregnant.
The infant, Aaron Hoffman, is listed in critical condition.
Look at this little guy, how could anyone want to hurt him???
Just another story that proves that you have to be careful who you allow to care for your children. Hopefully this little guy recovers from his injuries! And hopefully the POS boyfriend goes away for a VERY long time.
Thanks to Brenda for the tip!!!
