Grand jury indicts Baby Faith parents
JEFFERSON COUNTY - by Scott Lawrence
The Jefferson County grand jury has indicted the parents of Faith Mason on charges of injury to a child in what some doctors call the worst case of child abuse they've seen.
The grand jury indicted Darrell Dewayne Mason, 17, and Christine Johnson, 20, on First Degree Felony charges of Injury to a Child. Police arrested the parents last month. They're in the Jefferson County Jail.
If convicted, they could face up to life in prison.
Child Protective Services says the three-month-old girl is out of a hospital and now in a therapeutic foster home.
CPS took custody of Faith Mason in August when she was one month old.
She suffered nearly two dozen broken bones and injuries to her brain. CPS said her fractures are healing.
Doctors at Texas Children's Hospital say the baby is the victim of the worst case of child abuse they've seen. CPS said considering Faith's injuries she has come a long way and is doing pretty well.
