HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – An army sergeant stationed at Schofield Barracks was indicted Tuesday for allegedly shaking and squeezing his seven-month-old son in order to stop the baby from crying. Prosecutors say that the infant suffered multiple bilateral rib fractures, brain injuries and retinal hemorrhages at the hands of his father, 27-year-old Larry Moses Jackson.

The assaults allegedly occurred over a two week period.

Jackson is being charged with first-degree assault. He has no prior arrest record. His bail was set at $100,000.
