Raymond man accused of abusing infant wants his statements to police thrown out
Moore is facing 14 counts of second-degree assault and six counts of endangering the welfare of a child in Rockingham County Superior Court for allegedly injuring his son between Dec. 10 and Dec. 28.
Police told Moore that they didn’t believe him, and that the medical evidence showed the injuries were caused by, “twisting and pulling the infant with tremendous force,” according to court records.
Public defender Larissa Kiers said in court papers that Moore was told by police that he had to be interviewed so he could be excluded as a suspect. He was then asked to give a statement about how his son was injured.
A police detective left Moore alone to write his statement, but when the officer returned, Moore “explained he didn’t step on the baby, but maybe sat on him,” Kiers said in a court motion.
“During the interview, Cavan made various statements,” Kiers said in court papers. “None of the statements are per se admissions, but Cavan tries to explain to the detective how the injuries may have occurred.”
The boy’s mother, Erica Moore, is also facing six misdemeanor counts of child endangerment in connection with the case.
