Washington County, TN Jury Convicts Telford Man of Child Abuse, Neglect
A jury returned all guilty verdicts against 30-yr-old Andrew Allen, a Telford man accused of aggravated child neglect and abuse in a case involving the 2-yr-old son of his then girlfriend last May. The trial was an emotional one as jurors wiped away tears when they saw photos of the child whose injuries were so severe, EMTs who testified said they thought the child would die. A pediatric surgeon said during the case that the boy's head swelled to the size of a football and his injuries were consistent with constant beatings. Allen testified that the child fell off a back porch and denied hurting the child.
