Charges Against Mother Accused of
Breaking Baby's Leg Bound to Court
Papers filed in Cercone’s office say 27-year-old Leslie Skaggs 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.
Court papers say that during the course of the investigation, Skaggs admitted she was responsible for the injury.
Skaggs is free on $10,000 bail.
