Father Arrested for Infant Abuse

7-22-05 - OSBI agents arrested the father of a 9-week-old girl for severely shaking that child. Agents arrested 20-year-old Justin Wayne Brese at a family member’s home in Boswell Friday afternoon.

The child’s doctor says the young girl suffers from shaken baby impact syndrome. The girl was abused inside a Durant apartment where her parents were staying with relatives.

Monday, July 18th, the victim’s parents transported her to a hospital in Durant and then later that day took her from the hospital against medical advice. Hours later, a relative of the child admitted the infant to an Atoka hospital. She was later sent to an Oklahoma City hospital.

OSBI agents book Brese into the Bryan County Jail.

Agents worked hand in hand with the Durant Police Department, the Department of Human Services, and the Choctaw Trial DHS. Agencies that assisted with this investigation are Bryan County Sheriff’s Office, Atoka County Sheriff’s Office, Choctaw County Sheriff’s Office, the Bennington Police Department and the Boswell Police Department.
