GRIFFIN.JPEGSTANTON, Mich. – A 13-month-old girl was hospitalized at Gerber Memorial Hospital in Fremont over the weekend as a man now stands charged for allegedly abusing her.

Twenty-six-year-old Sean Griffin, Howard City, was formally charged Monday afternoon by video in Montcalm County.  He was arraigned on one count of first degree child abuse which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Michigan State Police said the baby was hospitalized over the weekend after the mother noticed injuries she claimed happened while the baby was in the care of her live-in boyfriend, Sean Griffin.

FOX 17 confirmed the couple shares an apartment in the 700 block of Walnut Street in Howard City.  We checked Griffin’s criminal record.  It came back clean.

The baby is recovering from three broken ribs including bruising in the head, face and abdomen.

    Obvious White trash, Probably from a white trash family who will claim his innocence-disgusting! The mother should be looked into as well, This little monster had to have exhibited violent behavior before this incident,

    Any updates on the baby? I hope she is healing, poor little gal.
    This Devil who “allegedly” (only because of the innocent until proven guilty thing)perpetrated this horrific crime needs to be dealt with and probably will be once he hits the prison circuit!
    What kind of parents raise a monster like this? Answer: Obviously not very good ones!
    They should feel real proud of their little bully! idiots!
    Wonder how they will feel once the boys in the cellblock beat their kid to a pulp for what he did?

    This guy has a newborn baby son. He treats him amazing. I know this guy. He would never do anything like this. He's been around so many kid his whole life. I don't think he's did it but that's just me. I don't wanna start a bunch of drama on here. So please no hate. I honestly think the mother did it or somebody else not Sean… if you guys all knew the real story maybe it'd be different
