A 36-Year-Old North Platte man has been charged with Felony Child Abuse.
On April 26, North Platte Police were called to meet with a local school counselor after a 10-year-old student was found to have a bump on her head.
Following an investigation, police learned that there had been a disturbance at the girl’s home the previous night, which also involved her 16-year-old brother and her father, Kevin Hawkins.
Investigators conducted interviews with both children, and determined there was probable cause to arrest Hawkins for Felony Child Abuse.
He was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
