On Sat. August 2, 2008, three year old Carson Chaney was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center and placed in ICU due to serious injuries sustained at the hands of his father, Colt and his stepmom, Amanda Chaney of Moultrie, Georgia. Colt and Amanda Chaney have since been charged with two counts of First Degree Cruelty to Children and other charges are pending.
Carson's injuries, as stated by the Moultrie Observer, are: 2nd and 3rd degree burns on numerous places on his body that had blistered and bled due to lack of medical treatment, bruises and abrasions on his face body. Also, Carson was locked in his room for a week for punishment. Carson has had it rough his entire life and he is only three years old. Please keep in mind that several months ago Carson had to be life flighted to a Tallahassee hospital because he allegedly fell off of a porch and cracked his skull. For more than a week it was unknown whether Carson would live or die. At that time, Carson was being cared for by Colt and Amanda Chaney.
As of now, Colt and Amanda are being held in the Colquitt County Jail without bond and we are fighting to keep it that way. Without the courageous action taken by a babysitter, Carson could have died from his injuries.
We, the undersigned, call on the Colquitt County Superior Court Judge to deny bonds for Colt and Amanda Chaney and in the event that a bond is granted, we call upon the Certified Bondsmen of Colquitt County in refusing to sign those bonds.
Also, we call upon the Colquitt County District Attorney's Office to offer NO lesser charge plea deals to the defendants and that their punishment be to the maximum permitted by law.
