Dad charged with felony child abuse, 3-month-old son hospitalized with multiple fractures (Thomasville, North Carolina)

Dad ERIK ADALID ORELLANA has been charged with felony child abuse. Somehow I suspect that this is an unmmarried father with visitation. Why the family courts insist on "involving" teen fathers is something of a mystery to me. This group has sky high incidents of child abuse.
