Somersworth mother charged over statements in abuse case against Rochester boyfriend
Stephanie Woodsum, 23, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of unsworn falsification on Monday just as her boyfriend, Kevin Lynch, was arraigned for allegedly choking her daughter and causing hemorrhaging around the toddler's eyes and face.
He is charged with second-degree assault, an offense punishable by up to 3 ½ to 7 years in state prison.
Statements she made during the interview were found to be "purposely misleading" as police investigated their case, which led to Lynch's arrest, according to police. The state Department of Youth and Families is now involved with the care of the girl, police said. Woodsum, who police say is a transient from Somersworth, was released on $25,000 personal recognizance bail.
A doctor who specializes in child abuse pediatrics told police that the young girl was brought to the hospital after the girl's mother noticed "blood in her eyes, nose and a rash on her face and chest," court documents said.
Lynch said the bed wetting happened just after he woke up around 8 a.m. and had started his car to leave his girlfriend's residence.
"He had told her not to wet the bed again before leaving the residence," Munck said in the affidavit. Lynch told police that the girl's mother was asleep during the incident. Lynch is due back in court for a probable cause hearing on March 18. Woodsum is scheduled for arraignment April 8.
