Injuring baby denied

September 28, 2016 | By More

Court House-07A man charged with causing grievous bodily harm to a baby has pleaded not guilty to eight charges in the Christchurch District Court.

The 35-year-old North Canterbury man was granted interim name suppression until his next appearance at a Crown case review hearing on December 5.

He has denied charges of causing grievous bodily harm to a 14-week-old baby, assaulting the baby, three charges of assaulting a woman with intent to injure her, and three charges of breaching a protection order by phoning and sending texts to a woman.

All charges are dated from June 2015 to July 2016.

Police did not oppose the interim name suppression application, and Judge Jane Farish said the file would be transferred to the Crown prosecutors’ office, and they could oppose it at the next appearance if they wished.
