Father arrested for aggravated child abuse after son's visit to emergency room

PINELLAS PARK — The father of a four-month-old boy was arrested on a charge of aggravated child abuse Thursday after the child was taken to the emergency room twice in three weeks, police said.

Jeremy Allen Graham, 37, of Pinellas Park turned himself in after learning he would be arrested, police said. His son's injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

Pinellas Park police officers were called to a hospital on Monday, Oct. 26, to look into a potential child abuse case. The four-month-old was found to have both new and old head injuries, and records showed the child had also been brought to the hospital on Oct. 6.

Police determined that Graham had been caring for the child on both occasions and believe the child was injured in his care.

Graham was booked into the Pinellas County jail.

The child's name and address are being withheld.
