Girardville Man Enters Plea For Injury of Son

Peter Howard, 39, of Girardville, entered a plea of "No Contest" to injuring his then 2 Month Old Son back in September 2011.

Howard was charged with endangering the welfare of children, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person.  There was also an aggravated assault charge but that was dropped.

According to testimony, Howard says he accidentally sat on his son, but police say his son suffered a fracture in his left femur and significant bruising around his eye, which is inconsistent with Howard's testimony.
