Pennsylvania Father Faces Series of Charges after Fleeing with 2-Week-Old Son

By Sheryl Rentz on July 30, 2013

Phillyburbs.com recently reported that a 32-year-old Pittsburgh man was arrested and jailed after jumping out of a second-floor window with his two-week-old son. The police had attempted to serve the man with an emergency protection-from-abuse order from the infant’s mother at her apartment when he fled with the baby.

According to police, the suspect strapped the baby to his body in an infant carrier before jumping out the window. The suspect was found at his home several hours later where he surrendered with the baby. He told reporters, “All I did was take my son into my house. That’s all I did.”

The suspect is facing charges of kidnapping, interference in the custody of a child, and endangering the welfare of a child.

Protecting Yourself and Your Children

In the state of Pennsylvania, a judge may grant a 24-hour emergency protection order if he or she believes that the victim is in immediate danger. Violation of a protection order, in addition to kidnapping and endangerment charges, can result in civil and/or criminal penalties, including jail time and fines.

Child custody cases are often emotionally charged, especially when one of the parties fears for the safety of his or her child. With the guidance of a qualified family law lawyer, you will be able to determine the best course of action to protect your legal rights as well as the well-being of your children. If you are seeking to maintain custody of your child or to file orders of protection in Pennsylvania, contact the accomplished family law attorney Sheryl R. Rentz at (610) 645-0100 for a free and confidential consultation.
