I'm more concerned about why this child is dead than posting "lolololololol Adrian is a bad father, look at me guys". Specifically, like why the piece of poo who killed him was around this kid after being caught doing this before. To not only him, but another child also.
Court records show Patterson has a history of domestic violence.
He was indicted in June 2012 on several counts of simple assault involving an ex-girlfriend and her 3-year-old son, and later was charged for violating a no-contact order. He was sentenced to one year in jail for both cases but that time was suspended on the condition he attend domestic violence counseling.
The victim in that case — who is not the mother of T.R.R. — said in a request for a protection order that Patterson had spanked her 3-year-old so hard for misbehaving in church that he needed ice for welts on his buttocks. When she got angry with him for it, she wrote, Patterson made the children go to their rooms, then pulled the shades, grabbed her by the throat and waved his fist in her face.
He stopped when their infant son began to cry.
“He has (threatened) to kill me multiple times,” she wrote.
The woman asked for temporary protection orders against him twice in Minnehaha County prior to the birth of their son, who was in her custody when T.R.R. was injured Wednesday.
A different woman sought a protection order against Patterson in 2004 in Jackson County, where he attended high school.
In court on Friday, Lincoln County State’s Attorney Tom Wollman asked a judge to revoke the terms of Patterson’s suspended sentence on the two domestic abuse cases.
