JACKSON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A man from Wellston has been convicted of felonious assault and child endangerment during a trial Jackson County, Ohio.
Nicholas A. Bethel, 24, was found guilty during the two day trial that ended Friday.
The convictions are the result of an incident in March when prosecutors say Bethel physically abused a young child in his care, and also assaulted an adult with a metal jack.
“The young child in this case certainly deserved our attention and justice for what happened to him,” Prosecutor Justin Lovett said of the convictions.
Bethel faces between two and eleven years in prison when he his sentenced at a later date.
