Posted on May 21, 2009A 28-year-old man from Florida has been arrested after being accused of abusing his live-in girlfriend's infant boy. The Bradford County resident, Rayan Stanton Wesson, was put in jail on $200,000 bond after his story regarding the 8-month-old boy's injuries failed to match the evidence found by medical experts. Upon confrontation, Wesson finally admitted to throwing the infant against the couch multiple times and swinging him by his leg, but his original story was that he slipped and fell while holding the baby when keeping him alone at home on May 1. Upon hospitalization, the baby was found to have suffered head injuries, which could lead to permanent impairment, and other severe injuries that resulted from child abuse.
