Longview Infant Survives Child Abuse

A three month old East Texas girl has survived a case of alleged child abuse in Longview. 23 year old Jeffery Lynn Robinson is charged with first degree injury to a child. Robinson told police he was alone with his three month old daughter Madison at his home last Friday, when the baby fell off the couch. However, police say he later changed his story to say he had dropped the infant. Madison  was hospitalized with multiple skull fractures, bruises to the head and legs, and hemorrhaging in the eyes and even a bite on the leg. She was taken to a Dallas hospital in serious condition, but was released Friday after spending five days in intensive care. Jeffery Robinson remains in the Gregg County jail on 50 thousand dollars bond. If convicted of felony injury to a child, Robinson could face a maximum of life in prison.
