On Monday, Feb. 20 the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office responded to the Wellmont Hawkins County Memorial Hospital Emergency Room in reference to a possible child abuse.

Upon arrival at the scene deputies spoke with emergency room staff in reference to an 18-month-old female child whom had been brought in by the child's mother for a possible rash. After observing the child condition, Deputies notified Detectives whom responded to the scene and noticed that the child had been abused. The child suffered serious bruising and marks on her face, neck, torso and legs which was consistent with abuse.

Detectives notified Child Protective Services whom responded to the scene and placed the child with a family member.

During the course of the investigation detectives interviewed the mother's boyfriend, Christopher G. Clamons, 22, of Rogersville, Tenn. whom gave detectives a statement admitting to inflicting the injuries to the child.

Clamons was charged aggravated child abuse and neglect. He is currently being held in the Hawkins County Jail, on a $50,000 bond. He will appear in Hawkins County General Sessions Court in Rogersville on March 5.

I think people like that should be hung in front of the courthouse.After doing this several times I think we would get the point across. Why would you want to put a lowlife like this up and feed him? I wouldn't give him air in a jug....And why did the suppose to be mother not have the child in the ER for the child abuse? I think her name should be made public. She is no better than he is.That child was depending on her.Does she have access to this child?I personally don't think she should have any contact.

the mother is just as guilty,she should be in jail too. the mother should have known what kind of person she exposed her child too.

They don't understand Big Wurds like "Cogent"...They think it refers to a vaguely remembered '70s TV show starring Telly Savalas...

I got sick trying to read what Don wrote.Couldn't finish it,didn't sound like english. I wish I had help 30 years ago when my x husband took a 2by 4 to my son's back who was only 6. Then he took a tie down strap with the hook on the end and used it on my other son,age 4. I left him several times,but had no help, I wanted someone to show him he was not as big as he thought he was.He was finally arrested for 2ed degree aggravated assult.The pain that has caused me and to my sons,I will never forget. When I hear of another child getting abused, I do hope they get what ever they deserve,what goes around,comes around.

well he will get what he has coming to him in jail or on the streets this town will never forget his name. I do Doubt he will get out since he gave detectives a statement admitting to inflicting the injuries to the child. So, even if he does people will run him outta town, back in the 80`s this woman named tammy trexler had a lil boy named scottie trexler and the lil boy got abused by the boyfriend of he mama`s and the mama knew and didnt do anything about it and they both went to jail he got like 25 years and the mama didnt get to long and got out and the town of rogersville ran her outta town. All i know if someone was abusing my lil 18 month old baby i would kill someone over my child, and the mama had to know her baby was being hurt there isn`t any way in hell she didnt know and i think both should be in jail for the rest of their lifes for wat they did to that child. My heart goes out to the child and the family. i hope you guys get the justice you and the baby deserve.

I had a friend who worked at the hospital when Kerry Bowers-the guy who "Abused"-Read "Murdered" Scottie Trexler-trial was going on. He said Bowers claimed he was "Sick" & "In Pain" all the time, & they had him at the hospital frequently..My bud said there was really nothing wrong w/him, he was just trying to load up on as much dope as they would give him. Because of that trial, they changed the law here in Tennessee & I think a boyfriend or girlfriend who causes the death of a child by willful abuse like that can get the death penalty themselves. My bud said Bowers was the kind of person you automatically took a BIG dislike for, he was always spouting off about his "Rights", & how the hospital staff HAD to treat him-or else.
