Convicted child abuser dad still retains visitation rights, so he beats 3-year-old son again (Bedford, Oregon)

Key words here: "returned this 3-year-old son to his mother." In other words, this is a custody/visitation situation.

So why was a father allowed to have contact with the same child he once slammed into a wall as an infant? Was it the mother's idea? Doesn't seem likely, as she has not been arrested for failure to protect or allowing this father to have access in violation of a court order. So it seems very likely that this is COURT-ORDERED custody/visitation, though of course this article refuses to clarify the matter. Who put this child back in danger? We need to see the names and they need to be held accountable.

Dad is identified as CARY ALBRIGHT.


Bedford County man a repeat offender of child abuse

BEDFORD -- For the second time in as many years, a Bedford County man has been found guilty of endangering the welfare of a child.

Cary Albright, 33, of Osterburg, was found guilty Thursday night after a day of testimony.

The most recent charges occurred after Memorial Day 2015 when Albright returned his 3-year-old son to the mother.

According to a release from the Bedford County District Bill Higgins, the mother discovered the child had been beaten.

The child had injuries that included large bruises on both sides of the face and red marks around his neck, with black and blue bruising around other areas.

The release said the child was told by his father to say that he had fallen, but later admitted that "his daddy did this to me."

In 2012, police responded to a domestic violence incident in which Albright allegedly slammed the same child's head into a wall while attempting to flee the scene.

Two years later, a jury convicted Albright of endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest.

He was sentenced to 11 months in jail. Albright is scheduled to be sentenced on May 6 and will remain in jail on retainer until sentencing.

He remains in the Bedford County Jail on a parole violation detainer.
