Babysitting dad admits throwing baby girl onto bed, fracturing her skull (St. Paul, Minnesota)

Dad ANTHONY GOODALL has pleaded guilty to felony malicious treatment of a child. It seems that Daddy Dearest threw his 8 1/2 month old daughter onto a bed, fracturing her skull. There was evidence of previous injuries, such as broken bones in various stages of healing, as well. Once again this is a case of an apparently unemployed daddy drafted into babysitting duty when he had no business being anywhere around infants or small children. Too bad mommies are no longer allowed to be mommies, but are forced to work and support deadbeat idiots like this guy.

The father of an 8 1/2-month-old girl who was hospitalized in February with a skull fracture and other broken bones in various stages of healing, pleaded guilty Wednesday to the felony charge of malicious punishment of a child.

Anthony Goodall Jr., 21, will be sentenced April 20 by Ramsey County District Judge Joanne Smith.

According to the criminal complaint, the baby's mother brought the girl to St. Paul Children's Hospital on Feb. 11 after she noticed swelling and a "squishy" feeling on the baby's head while feeding her. The mother told police she had left the child with Goodall when she went to work Feb. 8.

Doctors later found the girl had healing fractures in her collarbone and in both legs. Goodall admitted he threw the baby onto a bed "with such force that she struck the bedroom wall with her head," the complaint said.

The baby's prognosis was not clear.
