Papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office say 27-year-old Leslie Skaggs of Bradford took the baby to BRMC for treatment of an abscess and, while she was been examined they determined she had a broken leg. The child was then sent to Women & Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, where they determined she had several old, healing fractures.
Tests were performed to determine if the child suffered from an abnormality of the bones that would cause the fractures, but the tests found nothing abnormal.
Court papers say that during the course of the investigation, Skaggs admitted she was responsible for the injury. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.
