Cavan Moore, 27, pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree assault in Rockingham County Superior Court as part a plea bargain he struck with county prosecutors.
Moore was indicted on 14 counts of second-degree assault, and six misdemeanor counts of child endangerment.
A grand jury added charges of felony witness tampering earlier this month against Moore for allegedly contacting his wife while being held in jail, asking her to claim that either she or her mother harmed their son.
Assistant County Attorney Kirsten Wilson told a judge on Wednesday that doctors who analyzed X-rays taken of the baby boy concluded that he suffered from “classic child abuse fractures.”
Prosecutors believe that Moore inflicted the injuries sometime between Dec. 14 and Dec. 28, 2012 — a period where Moore was in charge of diaper changes and taking care of the baby.
Labell said he briefly left the hospital room where he interviewed Moore to let him write his statement about the injuries. Labell testified that when he returned to the room, Moore “told me he may have sat on his son’s ankle.”
Public defender Larissa Kiers said that her client still disagrees with how Labell characterized their conversations, but acknowledged there was enough evidence to convict him on the assault charges.
