child abuseOWENSBORO, Ky. (8/18/18) — An Owensboro man is accused of abusing a child resulting in first-degree assault charges after Kentucky State Police concluded a nine-month investigation.

KSP said the investigation was launched in November regarding John P. Dalrymple, 32, involving a 3-year-old child. Dalrymple was the legal custodian of the child at the time. The toddler was taken to a Leitchfield hospital in November suffering from multiple bruises on the face and body.

KSP presented its case to a Daviess County Grand Jury Aug. 9 and an indictment was returned for the charge.

Dalrymple was charged Aug. 13 and is being held in the Daviess County Detention Center on a $200,000 cash bond, where he also faces a charge of failure to appear in court.
