He is in jail on a charge of first-degree assault and ill-treatment for first-degree crimes, according to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office.
The allegations stem from an investigation that began Oct. 10 when first respondents were called to Hill’s Southwest Portland home to find the child had seizures or difficulty breathing.
As soon as the child arrived at the hospital, the doctors found out that the newborn had a “severe brain injury” – a spinal cord injury, according to the court documents. It is reported that the child is still alive.
The Multnomah County District Attorney Multidisciplinary Child Abuse team interrogated Hill during their criminal investigation. They say he confessed that he shook the child, squeezed him and threw him on the bed. Officials said he left, but later noticed that the child had seizures.
The DA office cited court documents, which say Hill waited almost half an hour to call the baby’s mother, who in turn called 911.
The indictment is only a crime. Hill is innocent until proven guilty.
The Child Abuse Multidisciplinary Team includes representatives from CARES Northwest, local law enforcement, public schools, hospitals, health departments, local mental health providers, the Oregon Department of Human Services, and the Multnomah County Department of Justice.
Multnomah County District Attorney’s multidisciplinary child abuse team works with community partners to protect abused and neglected children while ensuring that all trauma practices are informed and that the traumatic effects of child abuse are mitigated. The team also deals with child homicides, child sexual abuse cases, child abuse cases, detention cases, sex crimes, where the victim is not currently 18 years old, when the suspect is determined to be no stranger to the child. ,
CARES Northwest, Multnomah County Child Abuse Assessment Center is a community-based medical program for child abuse assessment, treatment, and prevention. The organization is one of the largest child abuse assessment centers in the nation, serving more than 5,000 children annually.
