Man Indicted on Assault Charge for Allegedly Shaking Infant Son

The father of an infant was indicted by the Kenton County Grand Jury on Thursday for allegedly shaking the baby violently.

Casey Radcliffe, 24, was arrested on October 3 by Independence Police, and now faces an indictment on the charge of first degree assault. Investigators believe that Radcliffe left the baby boy inside a crib for several hours even after it was clear that the boy was injured.

The baby suffered bleeding in his brain.

Radcliffe faces 10 to 20 years in prison if convicted and because first degree assault is a violent offense, he would have to serve 85 percent of any sentence imposed before being eligible for parole, Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders said.

Radcliffe is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center on $50,000 bond.
