A brother and sister have been charged by the Crawford County Sheriff's office with cruelty to children by negligence in the second degree.
The charges stem from a Nov. 27 incident when a Crawford County Sheriff's deputy responded to a call of a dog bite on Clay Road in Musella. When he arrived, the deputy found Mark William Fogelman, 18, standing at the end of a driveway holding an unclothed three-year-old boy, identified as Fogelman's nephew.
The deputy reported the child had visible injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Medical Center of Central Georgia.
The child has been released from the Medical Center of Central Georgia and is in the care of the Department of Family and Children Services as of Wednesday.
Fogleman and his sister, Sarah Fogleman, 22, have been charged with cruelty to children by negligence in the second degree. Both have been released on a $25,000 bond.
While the investigation is ongoing, the sheriff's deputies say the child sustained injuries while under the care of the Fogelmans, while unattended for an extended period of time.
The investigation also found there was no evidence that the child had been bitten by a dog.
