Man accused of assaulting baby seeks lower bail
Enrique Santiago Jr., 20, of Lawrence, Mass., has been held on $1 million cash-only bail since his arrest earlier this month. Police say Santiago repeatedly assaulted his girlfriend's son on several occasions in Nashua when he shook, squeezed and struck the baby, now 12 weeks old, in the head with an electronic tablet.
"We did make a request to lower bail," said attorney Anthony Sculimbrene. "We asked that it be lowered to (personal recognizance) bail, or alternatively, $49,000 cash only."
The testimonial portion of the probable cause hearing was bound over, he said, adding there is still a lot of information to review in the case.
Sculimbrene said he has met with Santiago twice, and also had the opportunity to meet with members of Santiago's family at Thursday's court hearing.
Meanwhile, the baby remains hospitalized following numerous assaults throughout the past two months.
Santiago has been charged with twelve counts of first-degree assault and one count of second-degree assault for the repeated attacks on the baby boy, who is expected to survive but could have lasting disabilities, according to police.
