Bismarck man pleads not guilty to abusing infant
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck man has pleaded not guilty to charges of abusing an infant and possessing child pornography.
Charges against 32-year-old Andrew Glasser result from a police investigation into injuries to a 2-month-old girl. Court documents say there’s physical evidence the baby had been sexually abused and had rib fractures and other injuries.
Prosecutors and Glasser’s attorney, Bob Bolinske Jr., questioned a Bismarck police detective about the investigation into the case during a court appearance Tuesday. The Bismarck Tribune says Detective Scott Betz gave various reasons for the infant’s injuries which police and a doctor disputed.
District Judge Bruce Haskell found sufficient cause for the charges. Glasser has been on GPS monitoring since Dec. 26.
