Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Seth Tackett, of 360 Frayne Dr, and charged him with two felony counts of Endangering Children and one felony count of Felonious Assault.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on June 24. Family members discovered that the child had injuries that appeared to have been from choking, strikes and the tight grip of adult hands squeezing the child on his torso. His genital area was swollen to the size of a baseball.

The child was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.

Evidence left no doubt that the child was the victim of severe and extreme physical abuse.

Tackett was arrested on Monday, July 3. He was arraigned Wednesday, July 5 and pleaded not guilty.

His bond was set at $100,000 and he was ordered not to have any contact with the victim.
