LOGAN — A jury will decide next month if a 33-year-old Logan man is guilty of abusing his one-year-old son. Bryan K. Teeter faces five felony counts, including aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony, and four counts of child abuse, a second-degree felony.
Teeter appeared in 1st District Court Tuesday morning for a final pretrial conference. His attorney told the court they are planning to go to trial, after failing to work out a plea agreement.
Teeter was arrested last summer after the baby was found with a skull fracture, lacerations to his genitalia, and bruising on his buttocks and face. Witnesses claimed the baby boy has severe brain damage that causes him to act “zombie like.” He is also partially blind and has partial paralysis to the left side of his body.
Teeter has pleaded not guilty to the charges. His defense attorney claims none of the evidence shows his client hurt the child. They also claim the baby’s mother may have been involved.
During Tuesday’s hearing, Judge Brian Cannell ordered the defendant to appear April 9 for the four-day trial.
Teeter remains in the Cache County Jail being held without bail. He could face up to life in prison if found guilty.
