Montcalm County Man Accused of Abusing 13-Month-Old

A judge charged a Montcalm County man accused of abusing a 13-month-old.

Sean Griffin of Howard City was arrested after Michigan State Troopers responded to Gerber Memorial Hospital in Fremont Saturday night to investigate serious injuries to a child.

Griffin appeared in court on Monday and is charged with first degree child abuse.

Police say the baby was brought to the hospital after the child's mother saw injuries. She said the injuries occurred while the child was left with Griffin, who is her live-in boyfriend.

Griffin will return to court later this month.
