Aaron Nixson is accused of assaulting a child who was left in his care by the mother.
The mother told authorities when she returned home that the child was on the floor of the bedroom. Nixson claimed she fell out of bed, but police say the bruises were not consistent with Nixson’s story.
Today, the defendant pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child and simple assault. He was also in court today for an unrelated offense, pleading guilty to use or possession of drugs.
