Detectives for the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office charged Jermaine Williams, 23, of Vero Beach, FLORIDA with capital sexual battery and aggravated child abuse Thursday. He was being held without bail at the Indian River County Jail.
Family members took the infant to Indian River Medical Center after discovering his injuries about 10 p.m. Wednesday, the affidavit states. Detectives said Williams had care of the child alone during the time of the attack. The boy was flown to St. Mary’s Children Hospital in West Palm Beach.
