Fairview Township man held for court in child abuse case

LEWISBERRY, Pa. (WHTM) -

A York County man is headed to court on child abuse charges for the second time in 11 years.

Peter Moore, 39, of Fairview Township, was bound over on charges of aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child during a preliminary hearing Monday.

A formal arraignment was scheduled July 11.

Township police said they charged Moore last month after investigating an incident where his 14-month old son was treated at Penn State Hershey Medical Center for drop fractures to both legs.

Police said the injury occurred at Moore’s home in the 600 block of Observatory Drive, he was the only adult home with the child at the time, and doctors at the hospital said the injuries could not have happened the way Moore explained it.

Fairview Township police arrested Moore in 2003 for violently shaking a 3-month-old son.

In that case, he was sentenced to 6-12 years in prison after pleading no contest to attempted homicide and guilty to charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
