Freetown Mom Charged With Child Abuse
Meaghan Vogel of Lafayette Park in Freetown was arrested over the weekend and charged with abusing her 7-month-old son. The 33-year old woman is being held on $5,000 bail, and is die to be arraigned today in Fall River District Court.
Police say that Vogel’s husband drove the child to Tobey Hospital in Wareham on Saturday, but did not call 911. He apparently told a family member, and they called police.
Vogel is charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and reckless endangerment of a child. The infant has been released from the hospital into the protection of the Department of Children and Families.
