Man charged in Ky. has earlier abuse conviction

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Northern Kentucky authorities say a man
accused of getting his toddler stepdaughter drunk was earlier
convicted of abusing her in North Carolina.

Raymond Jackson was charged with first-degree criminal abuse
after his wife came home from work May 22 to find her 2-year-old
daughter passed out.

Doctors at St. Elizabeth Edgewood measured her blood-alcohol
level at .259 and sent her on to Children's Hospital in Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that at a preliminary hearing
for Jackson on Tuesday, Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders said
the former Marine is on probation for a misdemeanor child abuse
conviction from Onslow County, N.C., for an incident last year.
