Police in Gadsden, Alabama have arrested Steven Jamar Jackson and charged him with Aggravated Abuse of a Child after he inflicted injuries that doctors say are the equivalent of a stroke victim.
Five-year-old Iyana Spencer is in Children’s Hospital with injuries to the right side of her brain. They expect her to survive but the effects are expected to be extreme.
Jackson called 911 on November 19th after he said that Iyana, his step-daughter, had fallen off the bed and was bleeding and shaking. Iyana was life-flighted to Children’s Hospital and underwent surgery.
Jackson is lodged in the Etowah County Jail on $125,000 bond.
