Bismarck father faces felony child abuse charge
BISMARCK — A Bismarck man is facing a felony child abuse charge for allegedly shaking his 16-month-old son.
Authorities allege that the son of 21-year-old Jeremy Young suffered eye and brain injuries that might be permanent.
Judge Bruce Romanick on Thursday set bond for Young at $25,000. Young requested a court-appointed attorney. No attorney was listed in court documents on Friday, and a home telephone listing for Young could not immediately be found.
Young could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
