Avery Convicted of Child Endangering

March 28, 2016 - 1:18 PM

MOUNT VERNON - Mount Vernon Director of Law Rob Broeren announced that Dennis Avery of Newark, Ohio was convicted on Friday, in the Mount Vernon Municipal Court, of Child Endangering after a two-day jury trial.

The charge arose out of an incident that occurred on April 28, 2015. Mr. Avery picked up his 13-month old son by one arm and also shook the child.

Assistant Director of Law Brittany Whitney tried the case to the jury. She presented testimony of the investigating officer, Child Protective Services, the victim’s family, and medical providers from Knox Community Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The jury deliberated for several hours before returning the guilty verdict.

Judge John C. Thatcher ordered Mr. Avery to serve 180 days in jail with 135 days suspended on the following conditions: that the Defendant serve a term of probation for two years, have no similar offense while on probation and complete a Batterer’s Intervention Program.

The Court also assessed a fine. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on a charge of Domestic Violence.

Avery was represented by Attorney Mark Minister.
