An Ohio man is behind bars after police said he broke his 3-month-old infant daughter’s ribs multiple times. “The child had over 28 rib fractures of varying ages, meaning they had happened at different times”, prosecutor David Fornshell said. The infant girl’s father, 33-year-old Jason Bittner, allegedly told the doctors that the child’s injuries were caused by an accident.
“Mr. Bittner is a medical professional”, the prosecutor said. “By all accounts he’s a member of good standing in the community he’s active in his church and I think people think that people like that are incapable of committing acts of child abuse or even domestic violence and those kind of situations but unfortunately those types of acts are committed by all manner of people.”
