Bismarck father faces felony child abuse charge

The Associated Press - BISMARCK, N.D.

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.
