UTICA – A Rome man will not stand trial after pleading guilty in a child assault case.

The Oneida County District Attorney’s Office says 24-year-old Brandon Shugars of North Crescent Drive pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child Thursday morning in Oneida County Court. Shugars had been charged with assault after he was accused of slamming his two-year-old son’s head through a wall, causing the boy to suffer cuts and bruises.

Rome police said the child’s injuries were discovered in February when officers responded to the home for a report of a domestic violence dispute. Shugars was also charged with criminal mischief and obstruction of breathing as a result of that investigation.

Shugars is scheduled to be sentenced for the child endangerment plea on October 1.
