Father Charged Over Son's Sunburn Appears In Court

A Madison County father who police say is responsible for his son's serious sunburn entered a not guilty plea on Wednesday morning.

27-year-old Bobby Jones is charged with criminal abuse after police say he left his two-year-old son in the hot sun for too long.

Berea Police say Jones let his son play outside on Sunday for at least an hour and a half without any sunscreen or protection from the sun. The result, large blisters, which doctors say are 2nd and 3rd degree burns.

Police say the father never said anything about the blisters. The boy's mother noticed them when she came to pick him up.
