Thank you for the additional information. If he is still in jail, there is likely a bond on him, so he will need to be bonded out. A bail bond company can be hired to post the bond, so he does not have to sit and wait in jail, until the case is resolved. They normally charge a 10% fee, so you can contact some companies this morning to retain their services. If he is unable to retain private counsel, he will need to be appointed the public defender
, the next time he appears in court. The PD will make a demand for discovery and see all the evidence which the State has and will be using against him. Of course, it is important to see if there were any witnesses and who this was even reported by. Moreover, he will likely need to obtain medical documentation, to support his claim that he has seizures, as someone who suffers from them, typically is under the care of a doctor. In addition, the medical report and evaluation of the child would need to be obtain, to see if the marks and bruises on the body are consistent with a child falling or if they are from being struck. Right now, the best thing that you can do is retain a bail bondsman to get him released from jail, since you are unable to hire legal counsel at this time. The goal is to get him released at this point, so he does not have to sit and wait in jail and can fight these charges from outside of a jail cell.
