Justin David Tucker

OGDEN — A 24-year-old Ogden man is in the Weber County Jail after police say he beat a 2-year-old, breaking his arm in the process.

Justin David Tucker was arrested Wednesday after reportedly admitting to Ogden police he had also beaten the boy on his neck, back and face. Tucker allegedly said he grabbed the boy by the arm and threw him to the ground at least two times.

Tucker is charged with child abuse, inflicting serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony. He made his initial court appearance Friday morning.

A woman called police after finding extensive bruising on the boy. Tucker was the only adult present with the boy when he was beaten, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case.

"(Tucker) stated that he blacked out and cannot remember if he did anything else," the affidavit states.

Her mother is a meth head but "only does it once a month"If dcfs tests teras mom to see if she's been dirty while baby sitting them... The story will tell itself

anonymous

I wouldn't announce you're his mom.. not something to be proud of. He'll get what he deserves in jail, hopefully he doesn't "blackout" in the process :)

anonymous

He wouldn't hurt anyone else ever again. Good enough reason for me.

anonymous

White trash is not a racial slur. It is a socio-economic slur. It has very little to do with being white, and almost everything to do with being a poor, ignorant social liability. I'm white. But I'm not white trash.

anonymous

He's been getting help for two years almost three thank u very much

anonymous

acutely no child predators are. get ur facts straight

anonymous

*F U why don't we put u down... any one for wanting to kill some one out of cold heat is an animal to. plus the death sentence is an easy way out for people who have done wrong... they should have to think about what they did and learn from it not be put to rest.

anonymous

u know if u keep using the term white here every one is just gonna see u as a racist.

anonymous

wow wow wow hold up here.... a lot are but not every one thank u.

anonymous

thank u so much that's what so meny other people have been wondering too. if he has the nerve to hit u its likely that he could do it to others....

anonymous

Everyone who has posted here, besides me, is white trash. No exceptions.

anonymous

Thank you for proving that you are white trash.

anonymous

If your kids truly did always come first, you wouldn't have left your son with Mr. Tucker. I hope you get charged with a crime, and your son goes to a loving, non-white trash family.

anonymous

Hes Been Getting help Four Two Years... He has never Givin reason for me to think he was going to hurt my son... I'll let people bash amd think what they want . But I no that me and my little family are safe now amd getting the help we need to recover...

anonymous

He has been getting help for to years!!!!!

anonymous

The thing I don't understand with his mother's defense here is if she knows "his full story" and he is actually "sick" why wasn't anyone getting him help before it came to him brutally injuring an infant? No sympathy here at all, completely inexcusable!

anonymous

Rebecca NOBODY was home PERIOD. I as well as 2 other family members was at a wake, and the mother went out like the husband told her to PERIOD. Could she or anyone of us stopped it probably not he blacked out PERIOD. .

anonymous

No and no one else was home but him so no one could have prevented it

anonymous

Well that's strange , was he diagnosed

anonymous

I am writing not for anyone else, BUT this child. The child in this story lives in my home as did the mother, father ( who did this ), and little girl. I apoligize for what 'im about to write. It has been stated that Justin has some mental stuff, and i'm sorry for that. He should of got help or/and if he got help before he should of paid attention to what they were trying to do to help. The whole point is NO child deserves to have this happen to them PERIOD. This little boy is not the same little boy he was before the incident. He has nightmares nightly, he don't eat like he use to, he is fearful when guys are around. He was scared of 2 people that lives in the home that would NEVER hurt a child if anything they would hurt the abuser. I was woke up at 10 am by this innocent child saying "My daddy hit me again" OVER AND OVER. I am a mother and best believe if my son did this I would turn him in myself for hurting his child / MY grandchild. I will pray for this man not for any other reason but the program of recovery teaches us that. This sickens me to the core of how people are jumping to defend what this man did to this child. THE CHILD IS THE VICTIM IN THIS NOBODY ELSE. The mother has had her world turned upside down because she truly loved this man, and never in her wildest dreams sis she think that her husband would do this. As far as what brilliant mind left the child with his father. STOP this man told his wife to go out with the girls because she is always with the children. Did she know he would beat the child NO, could she of stopped it if she was home PROBABLY

anonymous

Thank you!! Finally someone with a brain!! I don't think she ever said he was innocent. I remember reading that she said she hasn't condoned his actions or even said he was innocent. In a relationship the two parties are as one so they are both to blame.

anonymous

I had no idea he was going to touch my son but a k that matters is I'm a good mother and tale very well of my kids he's never been alone with my kids the one time I get away he snaps si keep blaming

anonymous

The doctor said he was perfectly fine to attend to our kids

anonymous

If she had been beaten by this man why in the world would she even consider leaving her child alone with this man? Does she have a case of stockholm syndrome or something? I hope this kid ends up in the hands of someone who actually cares about his well being because it sounds like neither the father or the mother cares about that.

anonymous

What's wrong with placing blame on the women? If she had knowledge of this guy's violent behavior and she still choose to leave her child with this man isn't she in some degree to blame? If I knew someone was a child molester and I left my child with that person wouldn't I be partially to blame if my child ended up being molested?

anonymous

Ok so did the doctor or whoever was helping him say he was ok enough to watch a child ? Just wondering, it's good he was getting help but there are a lot of factors especially with mental health and the length of time an individual had been receiving help

anonymous

He was getting professional help

anonymous

Sorry your son has issues , I'm more sorry about your grandson getting hurt, it's a blessing that your grandson is still alive , you should love your son he's your son , whatever you do don't enable or justify his actions, your not doing anything wrong by expressing your opinion but you should be pissed , he shouldn't of been left with any child and that is also the responsibility of the individual who has custody of the little boy

anonymous

Your his mom?

anonymous

If you are aware of someone's issue and nothing is done about it until an innocent little boy is hurt than your in the wrong also , if he needed help someone should of done something before the ch got hurt and once he was aware of his problem he should of been man enough to get help before harming his child , it's sad that things like this happen

anonymous

First of all at the day he put his hands on the adult women he should of been required to get help before being left alone with the child so technically it's the mothers fault to for knowing of his violent outburst and still allowing the child to be put in that situation , second he needs serious help and anyone who hurts a child deserve s a severe punishment without any excuses , everyone involved in the situation with exception of the innocent child who was hurt should take responsibility for their part .

anonymous

Real men protect those who cannot protect themselves, Justin victimized them. Real men demonstrate self control when dealing with a situation that frustrates or angers him. Real men teach their sons to be real men, Justin tought his son to be afraid of him. The fact that people are saying, he's a real man for telling the truth is really sad. I expect my children to tell the truth, and when the do. I don't anoint them real men or real women. I don't say anything, because that is what they are suppose to do.

shelgalval3

Really, may God have mercy on her soul and possibly yours as well, because you're now part of the problem and judging no matter how you do it, is a sin last I checked. Also, it doesn't sound like any of them are really bashing her, they're trying to make her see that there is no justification regardless the "reason" (cause that's all it really is) for hurting a child, but it's a waste of time when she is part of that reason. Than she wonders why her son is stuck in this cycle is his life, the one she provided. Sorry, you must not know a whole lot about abusers, their strategies and being abused...... Not saying you haven't been, just saying you need to learn more about the facts of an abuser before trying to understand what the victims are going through. Once again, this mother Kathy/Justin are not the victims. Congratulations, you're now apart of societies huge problem.

anonymous

Thank u so much! My kids always come first!!!!

shelgalval3

Tera and family, I'm sorry for your pain and your sons, physical and psychological as well, cause this will effect him. Make sure to get him help so the cycle stops here. Don't give his mother anymore satisfaction of trying to prove your point, there's no point cause she is justifying it and in that it's as bad as condoning it. 85% of abusers grew up in abused homes, so she's part (huge part) of the problem. Lady (Kathy i guess) shame on you and for you who said stop bashing her, well you're obviously blind to this entire families illness cause as a mother of two boys and a survivor of abuse, I'll be dammed if I even tried to explain reasoning for this behavior, I'd be embarrassed but he is a product of his mother and when one feels guilty as a huge part of his problem, one will justify! You can say until you're blue in your face he will pay for his crime"but" all you want you are not fooling anyone! It is a sad situation and if you really really love your son, you have to give him tough love, even if it means not having his back, showing him this time he went to far and you can not or will not condone it any longer. If you love your grandson, why don't you try just for one second being sympathetic about the situation, he's not the victim anymore (your son Kathy) that baby is. I mean there are plenty of parents who decide in life their children won't change or listen to them regardless, let it go already, he is an adult and his choices are his, let him live with them. We've all had a bad life, most have a story but I teach my kids that once they are adults, they decide what road to take, the reason he is the way he is, look in the mirror, you've obviously justified all his bad decisions in life, with the horrible life he had, than wonder why he can't get through it! Try something like," Tera I am so very sorry he did this, I know he needs help and I'm here to help him if he wants it, but I am here for my grandson and you more, cause I love my grandson and if my son chooses not to get help, well then I guess he will live with his consequences!" Choose to be a grandmother, a better one than you were a mother. Keep justifying it and an abuser will see it as condoning it, you're after all his biggest influence. Once again, I don't know any of you and I'm sorry to hear this and even more sad to see anyone, especially his grandmother say anything or do anything less of being understanding, sympathetic and there more for this poor baby..... that's the only side right now and that's the only one you should be defending. Best wishes to all of you, and prayers for the little one..

He is my son and in four years we been together I didn't think my husband would ever hurt our son my kids are just fine getting a divorce and movin on!

anonymous

Mom......there is NEVER an excuse for beating anyone, let alone an infant. Come on!? And, what brilliant mind left this baby alone with mr. wonderful??? I'm sure we'll hear more about that. I am concerned about this baby, and praying he never has to go through this again.

anonymous

You all should be ashamed of yourselves bashing that poor woman. May God have mercy on all your souls

anonymous

The good news is that his 'mental issues' will be addressed in prison with plenty of 'wall-to-wall' counseling. Child abusers are the lowest of the low in prison.

anonymous

You all can just go to ....

anonymous

Yes, you're free to out yourself as a terrible mother (and grandmother) and make an utter fool of yourself in the process. You might want to quit while you're behind.

anonymous

Beat up a two year old and broke his arm? Whoops! Sorry about that!It's time to institute the death penalty for child abusers.

anonymous

Put the animal down.

anonymous

I have a right to state my opinions. And I will say it again!!! I am in no way condoning his actions. I know you and your family don't like me and the feelings mutual. He does deserve to be punished for what he did. I never said he didn't. He did something totally horribly wrong. But since he is my child I will be there for moral support. He is a human being no matter what!! He is sick and NO YOU DON'T KNOW HIS WHOLE HISTORY. Now enough bashing me ok? I just wanted everyone to realize his side of the family is hurting also. I mean aren't we human too? We didn't commit that horrible deed; he did. This will be my last post I'm done arguing with you and your sister.

anonymous

It's not a story. I know he is sick. He needs a lot of help and he is going to get it. I am not asking for you or anyone to give him sympathy. I have a right to state my opinion just like you do.

anonymous

It dosent matter what u think Kathy ur not even in this or really no what happen no one does but justin and I'll admitt he did own up to what he did and this story is missing alot considering two black eyes bruises on his arms back legs he was covered but he may be ur son but he will get what he deserves!!!

tuscarora

And in the USA, everyone has the right to respond to the babble that spills out of your head.

anonymous

They are not even saying all the things that he did to my nephew. He had 2 black eyes from his dad punching him rite in his face showed Justin's knuckles on the exrays. Your right they have not even told the hole story. And Justin is still on cort probation for beating my sister

anonymous

Yes he may be unstable. And again you don't know his whole history. I will not be saying it on here because it's private. Just asking you all to think about our feelings (his family's). He is my child and I will be beside him all the way. Why you might ask? It's because he is my child. Yes he deserves to be punished. What he did was totally wrong. Again I ask please keep in mind that we have feelings and we are mourning through all this. It killed me to hear that my child did this to my grandson. :'(

rgp808

Wow, He "Stepped up" and admitted to it. That's like saying "Oh hey, I inflicted tremendous pain on a child. MY BAD". He is not a MAN

anonymous

No it doesn't ever I fully agree. I was only trying to get my feelings out there. And the last time I checked I live in the U S A where I have the right to free speech.

anonymous

Whatever!!!

anonymous

It doesn't matter what "events led up to this incident" NOTHING justifies putting your hands on a child!

anonymous

Wen he beats his wife 3 times and then hes SON .beating a 2 year old he cant defend him self. your son "justin" he is unstable ,psycho, and I hope he get 15 years without bail

anonymous

Thank u for ur comment

ernestthompson7169

I hear this a lot with younger folks. "I blacked out" or "I was so mad, I could only see red.". Blackout doesn't mean you're a beast, & you're unstoppable. It means that you've lost focus, & you flail at anything, hoping you connect. To people like DCFS, blacking out means many things, things like: irresponsible, unfit to care for a child, wild, & lack of self control are just some. I honestly don't think it was a blackout. I can't see how you can do that, then beat & break a child's arm like that.. I call that the Idiot Insanity Plea.

anonymous

Thank u ur comment means alot to me and my son

anonymous

Oh I'd love to help him have another blackout

anonymous

I'm this man's mother!! Before any of you make assumptions on him you need to realize that there is always more to the story than what is being said. Reporters only print what they believe will catch your eyes so the story gets read. None of you know the events that led up to the incident. None of you know what his mental health is.

anonymous

He may, but like I said before It takes a real man to admit it and pay for his crime. Yes he does deserve to be punished. I am in no way condoning his actions. Just please keep in mind that we, his family are devastated that this happened. Still none of you out there (except those few) fully know the history.

tuscarora

That is no man. He only happened to be born male. Huge difference.

anonymous

A real man. Doesn't tell the lady they live with he beat his son. And go to work the next day and not even say anything to tera or even see if his son is alive.. he new what he did and didn't even have any remorse for what he has done to his little boy.

anonymous

I know his story he tells like its a lecture to bad your son is sick in the head .some family

anonymous

That would be a wise decision. Don't repeat it. Good luck, and put your children first. I lost two of my children...once they are gone, you can never get them back. (Not from abuse) illness.

anonymous

I was talking to the grandmother, Tera......

sillybroad14ks

So am I

anonymous

I don't think she was making excuses at least the way I understood it. I pray he never has to go through it again either.

anonymous

im sure ur not all that right in ur head either.... every one has skeletons in there closet
