Ogden man appears in court on child abuse charges

Jonathan Dunn, 29, accused of abusing a six-month-old baby from North Logan. 

LOGAN — A 30-year-old Ogden man, Jonathan A. Dunn appeared in 1st District Court to be arraigned on charges that he abused a six-month-old baby from North Logan.

Dunn appeared with his attorney for a pre-trial conference Monday afternoon. He is charged with two counts of child abuse, both second-degree felonies.

Dunn was arrested in March after North Park Police reported a baby was taken to a hospital with a broken arm and severe bruising. While treating the child, hospital staff notified agents with Child and Family Services (DCFS) who then called officers. The baby is not related to Dunn, and the abuse allegedly occurred while he was visiting a home in North Logan.

Dunn was later released from jail after posting bail.

During Monday’s court appearance, Judge Kevin Allen ordered Dunn not to have any contact with the victim or the victim’s mother. He also ordered him not to have any contact with other children under the age of 18. The judge made an allowance for Dunn to have supervised visits with his own children.

Dunn was ordered to appear again in court on June 28.
