Ogden man pleads guilty to breaking baby’s arm

Jonathan Dunn, 29, accused of abusing a six-month-old baby from North Logan. 

LOGAN — A 30-year-old Ogden man, Jonathan A. Dunn has pleaded guilty to child abuse and will now wait to be sentenced in April.

Dunn appeared in 1st District Court Monday afternoon, accepting a plea deal. As part of the agreement, he pleaded guilty to one count of child abuse, a second-degree felony. Prosecutors dropped a second charge against him.

Dunn was arrested in March after North Park Police reported a baby was taken to a hospital with a broken arm and severe bruising. While treating the child, hospital staff notified agents with Child and Family Services (DCFS) who then called officers. The baby is not related to Dunn, and the abuse allegedly occurred while he was visiting a home in North Logan. He was later released from jail after posting bail.

During Monday’s court appearance, state attorney Spencer Walsh said part of the plea agreement was that sentencing would be postponed for several months so that Dunn could complete counseling.

Judge Kevin Allen scheduled sentencing for April 17. He also reiterated his previous order that Dunn not have any contact with minors except his own children.
