Dothan Man Charged with Willful Abuse of a Child

On Thursday, February 23, 2023, an infant child was presented to a local pediatric facility for treatment of a possible facial injury. Medical personnel immediately realized the severity of the injury and had the child transported to a local hospital or further evaluation. It appeared the child had some type of impact injury to the area of the forehead and eyes. The Dothan Police Department was notified and immediately began an investigation. It was determined the child was in the care and custody of his father at the time of the injury. The father’s explanation of the injury was not consistent with the type and severity of the injury. As a result, 25 year-old Christopher Curtis Rodriguez of Dothan was arrested and charged with one count of Willful Abuse of a Child.  His bond was set at $15,000.00.

It is believed that after the child has time to heal, he will make a full recovery.
