Sunburn Abuse Case Dismissed

A Madison county father charged with Criminal Abuse is no longer facing charges for his son's blistering sunburn.
Booby Jones was arrested earlier this month after his 2-year-old son got second and third degree burns from sun exposure. Berea Police said that Jones' son was allowed to pay outside for at least 90 minutes without any protection from the sun.
Jones pleaded not guilty to the criminal abuse charge on June 11.
Today the Madison County District attorney determined the case did not warrant a criminal abuse charge. However future charges may be filed in the case.
