A Findlay man awaiting trial for allegedly killing his infant son has requested he be able to see his wife’s newborn baby. The Courier reports the attorney for Jerrod Hartman made the request in paperwork filed with the Hancock County Common Pleas Court. On June 10 Judge Joseph Niemeyer ordered Hartman have no contact with the baby.
Hartman’s lawyer said the prosecutors, “relayed to individuals involved in this case that they no longer have opposition to Jerrod being around the newborn.” The prosecution denied that was the case.
The request also points out that Hartman has small nieces and nephews and he is allowed to be around them while out on bond.
Hartman is set to go on trial July 29.
