Man faces charges after daughter suffers head injury
October 29, 2009
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.— A Chambersburg man has been charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of children after his daughter suffered a head injury, according to the Chambersburg Police Department.
Jamell Lee Billups, 31, was arraigned and placed in Franklin County Prison on $200,000 bail, according to a press release.
Billups was charged after his 3-month-old daughter was taken to Chambersburg Hospital at about 5:15 p.m. on Oct. 19, the release said.
The girl’s parents said she was unresponsive, according to the release.
The girl was flown to Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center after a preliminary investigation showed she was suffering from a head injury, the release said.
The girl remained at Hershey Medical Center where she was being treated Thursday for traumatic subdural bleeding and extensive retinal hemorrhages, the release said. It also was determined the girl had 16 rib fractures, the release said.
An investigation was under way to determined the circumstances behind the girl’s condition, the release said
Poor precious baby girl. I hope she lives the rest of her life in the care of someone who will honor her as she is--a tiny, brand new life. A miracle. A gift.

This isn't an innocent injury. I wish they could do the same to the daddy.
I TOTALLY agree, George!

Were drugs or alcohol involved? Billups savagery in abusing the child deserves hard time in prison where, God willing, he will be a punching bag for psychotic body-building thugs who are bigger and stronger than he is.

Hardly...baby shakers don't have a rough time in jail.

Pedophiles do though.

This is sickening. Instead of putting him in jail, he should be placed on the square and let the public take turns beating him relentlessly. How does a grown man justify savagely beating a 3 month old child? What could that innocent little baby have done to cause such a horrible thing? Nothing. A 3 month old eats, cried, dirties diapers, and maybe smiles at you. I hope the system shows no mercy on this creep. Just remember, what goes around comes around a-hole.

someone needs to beat this guy down. in jail, on the streets. it doesn't matter. it didn't matter to him when he destroyed that little girl. how can you do that to your own child? i could never imagine doing that to my kids.
