Mother Accused Of Failing To Report Child Abuse
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A Bridgeport woman faces a felony charge as authorities say she witnessed abuse to her son and failed to report it.
Bridgeport police arrested 22-year-old Jarelis Lugo in New Haven Wednesday on a warrant of risk of injury to a minor. The Connecticut Post reports (http://bit.ly/1bSNEzV ) that her bond was set at $50,000.
It was not known Thursday morning if Lugo is represented by a lawyer.
Daquon Gomillion, the father of the 5-year-old boy, pleaded not guilty last month to child abuse charges. He’s accused of beating the boy.
Gomillion remains in jail on $750,000 bond.
Superior Court Judge Earl Richards called the abuse “horrific.”
Police said the boy had scars on his legs, back and chest and part of an ear was missing. A lip had been split, healed and split again.
