Deputy discovers baby unattended at home after domestic dispute
A 26-year-old white Forsyth man and a 27-year-old white Forsyth woman face charges of disorderly conduct and second degree cruelty to children after a domestic dispute at a Juliette Road home on Aug. 4. At about 11:34 p.m., a male neighbor and his wife told Dep. Tyler Rodgers they had heard loud banging coming from a nearby Juliette Road trailer for the past two hours. The neighbor’s wife said the female resident of the trailer had walked over to her home earlier and asked to speak with her husband. The neighbor’s wife said the female resident then accused her husband of having sex with the resident’s husband. The neighbors said the resident told them that her 10-month-old baby was inside her trailer alone and instructed them to tell the resident’s husband to go back to their home. The neighbors said the resident, who had a bruised left eye and blood dripping from her nose, then left walking toward Juliette Road to search for her husband. The neighbors added that deputies had visited the residents’ home recently for a similar dispute. Rodgers then entered the residents’ home and found several items scattered in the kitchen as well as a broken window. Rodgers then found the residents’ baby lying on a bed with no one else inside the home. Meanwhile, Dep. Stephen Phipps searched the area for the residents but was unable to find them. Therefore, Rodgers contacted a female Monroe County C.A.R.E. Cottage employee about the matter. The C.A.R.E. Cottage employee then arrived at the residents’ home and found the baby’s diaper was wet with urine and appeared to have been that way for a while. The C.A.R.E. Cottage employee then took the baby to the C.A.R.E. Cottage, where she met with Monroe County Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) representatives. Rodgers learned the resident’s husband has an active Temporary Restraining Order (TPO) against his wife. The female resident, who was arrested the following day on Aug. 5, was also charged with violation of a family violence order.
