Schofield sergeant indicted in assault on infant son
A Schofield Barracks Army sergeant was indicted Tuesday morning on a charge of assaulting his infant son "to stop his crying," a prosecutor said in court.
The defendant, Larry Moses Jackson, initially denied wrongdoing but later "admitted to shaking and squeezing his seven-month-old son to stop his crying," Deputy Prosecutor Victoria Kapp said after the indictment was returned.
Jackson is charged with first-degree assault.
The baby suffered multiple bilateral rib fractures, brain injuries and retinal hemorrhaging, Kapp said.
Jackson has no prior arrests.
Circuit Judge Richard Perkins set bail at $100,000.
