    Allen Michael Stanford was arrested and charged this evening with three counts of child abuse with great bodily harm and one count of child neglect with great bodily harm for harming his live-in girlfriend's four year-old daughter. The couple brought the child to the Brandon Regional Hospital Emergency for treatment of significant and visible injuries to her entire body. They claimed the wounds were self-inflicted.  An investigation by HCSO detectives determined the injuries were consistent with a pattern of physical abuse over time. The child's injuries are non-life threatening.

    Child Protective Investigations Division removed the child from the home and she remains in protective custody. The defendant is not the child's father but the three live together in the same location. This is an active investigation
    and is ongoing.
