On Monday, Oren Corry-Dwain Williams, 29, of Holts Summit, appeared for sentencing in circuit court.
He previously pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree and was sentenced to five years in prison. Williams admitted he threw the 7-year-old victim in June 2017, causing the child to suffer a broken arm.
Judge Jodie Asel suspended execution of the prison sentence and placed Williams on five years of supervised probation. The case was investigated by the Callaway County Sheriff’s Office and Missouri Department of Social Services — Children’s Division.
On June 20, 2017, a Children’s Division investigator requested the assistance of Deputy Nicholas Jensen in investigating a potential case of child abuse, Jensen reported in the probable cause statement. The investigator, Jensen stated, received a hotline report alleging Williams broke a child’s arm.
Jensen and the investigator interviewed the child at an elementary school, according to the statement. Medical records confirmed the child’s right humerus was broken.
Jensen said the child claimed Williams threw the child over a baby gate from the kitchen to the living room. The minor also said Williams ordered the child to “stop crying” or he would make the child’s arm “worser,” Jensen reported.
