as i find out more i will update people, i know alot of people wants to know whats going on with this. That being said I will not give out names of anybody involved. I want to see justice served as much as anyone, whether it be to one or both parents. I just dont think the father did it due to knowing how laid back he is about things and his personality but, as i said before i cant be sure, only the parents actually know who did it. if the father did have anything to do with the actual act of hurting that child he will get what he deserves, I can be sure of that much though. Im sure when one or both parties go to jail they will be welcomed with open arms by the other inmates. (hope you detect the sarcasm in the last sentence)

"Evidence in the case was presented to a Darke County Grand Jury Thursday morning. As a result, the victim's father, Cantrell, was indicted on one count of felonious assault and one count of child abuse, both felonies of the second degree. The mother has been indicted on a third degree child abuse charge.

Cantrell remains incarcerated in the Darke County Jail waiting arraignment. The mother has not been taken into custody at this time. If convicted Cantrell faces up to 16 years in prison and fines of up to $30,000. The mother faces a maximum of three years and a $10,000 fine" ( dailyadvocate.com .)

He won't get that because of some details that came out. I cant give what those details are out of respect for the family but I can say that the actions weren't intentional..i know you're thinking "how can those injuries be unintentional?" I cant say how but after hearing what actually happened he won't get anything major

I'm sorry, but I have 3 children, and I know many other people who have kids, and NEVER has anything like this occurred to their children or mine. I understand accidents happen (child falling of changing table for example) but no unintentional mishap results in these kinds of injuries without some form of neglect or abuse present in the situation! Children - even 2 wk old infants - are pretty tough, and it takes an act of intentional violence or force to bring about harm of this nature. If you want us to believe it was unintentional without an explanation, reality has escaped you!

Im not expecting anyone to believe me without an explanation and I dont blame you for not believing but, I am telling the truth that from what I was told by the family it was an accident and if the harm was indeed done the way I was told there wasnt intentional harm. Just failure to notice that the baby was hurt until it became more obvious due to the fact of being young, being the first child, and being scared, so yes it could be a form of neglect but not the charges it shows. the way it happened actually seems like it could be somewhat of a common accident, its just that in most cases the parent(s) is going to take the child to see if its ok sooner than in this situation. im not saying he should get off free, just that he won't get all these years that everyone thinks he will.

Rellik- of course the family said it was an accident. I don't care how it happened,a child that young does not receive those injuries as the result of an accident.Say what you want, but that is abuse!! Failure to notice the baby was hurt?? How could you fail to notice a baby had broken legs, a spinal injury, and severe bruising? Keep trying to make excuses. You just look more ignorant every time you get on here and try to defend these losers. And by the way, I see that your name is Killer spelled backwards. Is that supposed to scare us?

What does my name on here have to do with anything? Believe what you want, but there is a way for the injuries to have happened that was accidental. you can call me ignorant but making conclusions without actually knowing details of the case could make you look ignorant as well. as i have said before IF the info given to me is true i do not believe he will get a big sentence. Now if he really did purposely inflict the injuries then yes, he deserves everything he gets.

I believe that it is possible that the injuries could be accidental. But not noticing the injuries is a lie and not taking the child to a Hospital for treatment is a Crime. You cant convince me that they didnt know that they hurt this child... So there fore that makes it a crime.

Oh bullshit! they both intentionally did not take the baby to the hospital until a few days later because they KNEW he was hurt, they KNEW they were up shit creek, HELLO they ABUSED their baby. Those type of injuries are NOT accidental dumbass. Has anyone posted the parents names yet? Cody Cantrell & the other abuser is Chelsea Hartman.

That poor baby I hope he is doing well. Some people cannot have children & would love to have kids, then you have these two young naieve kids having kids, how can you not know your child is hurt, with all them injuries, spinal & brain? c`mon now someone is hiding the truth. It was not an accident. Of course friends of the family will stick up for them, but really you are bad, if worse taking up for the child abusers in my opinion. Too many parents getting off in this county. Something smells rotton in Darke Co.

Im simply stating facts, ive already stated that if it was proven to be intentional then they will get what they deserve, but im looking at this from an law perspective, its innocent until proven guilty, and if it was accidental, which these types of injuries can be accidental irregardless of what "Right" says up there. ill give a quick hypothetical situation on how something like this could be an accident... Lets say you have a child at that age, you lay said child on the floor and are laying next to it, watching tv, reading, etc. You have a pet dog that runs into the room and runs over the baby, you pick up the baby and dont see anything wrong and think maybe the dog just startled it, a couple days later you notice injuries and get help, youre now being investigated, does that make you a child abuser who deserves prison time... Others have made some good points but many people read the small details the media says and assume everyone is automatically guilty.. If you dont see signs of an injury when the baby didnt change behavior of crying or etc or you didnt see anything swollen due to the fact babies at that age are already kinda pudgy and you're not home enough to really get to spend time with the child, you're not going to think anything is wrong, then when you notice that something is wrong you immediately seek help from the hospital.....stupid and naive, yes....cold-hearted abuser, no.. Will they actually get some sort of punishment, yes... Will it be years upon years in prison, no.

You`re just making excuses for these two pos parents, I don`t think an animal running through the house over the baby, would be exactly a good example of accidental injuries like this baby had done to him? Look at all that was wrong with that baby! It was not an accident idc what anyone here says! UNLESS they dropped him from a two story window or slammed him against a freaking wall, then I could see spinal, brain injuries, broken bones accuring . An accident? MY ASS!
