ANTOINE RUCKER SQUEEZES HIS INFANT DAUGHTER CRACKING HER RIBS AND COLLAPSING HER LUNGS – UPDATED 08.21.2013 – CCA0003

ANTOINE RUCKER SQUEEZED HIS 6 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER SO HARD, HE CRACKED HER RIBS AND COLLAPSED HER LUNGS

5Antoine Rucker squeezed his 6 month old daughter so tightly that he fractured her ribs, collapsed her lungs and damaged her heart.  He was arrested on two counts of felonious assault and held on $200,000.00 bond.  There is no clue as to what motivated Rucker to hurt his daughter in such a brutal fashion.

The background story surrounding this case is a complex one.  The baby’s mother, who is reported to be 16 – 17 years old, was Rosalind Hedges’ foster child when Hedges’ grandson – Rucker – impregnated her, according to the Jeff Centers, interim director of Butler County Children Services.  The young mother was moved to a new foster home in September and gave birth Oct. 21.

Five months later, the young mother told Butler County child welfare authorities that she couldn’t care for her child and turned her infant over to the agency.  As it turned out, the baby ended up with her great-grandmother – Hedges – in the same Springfield Township home where the teenage mother used to live and where Rucker continues to reside.

The baby girl was brought into the hospital with her horrific injuries only one day after being placed in Hedges’ home.  Thankfully, she did survive the abuse.

Antoine Rucker was sentenced to 2 years in prison for abusing his daughter.  When he did not return to the court house after being sentenced, an arrest warrant was issued and Rucker was found hiding in his home like the cowardly piece of crap he is.

  1. How do you know the information is true were you there did you speak to anyone in the home.

    • Police reports, medical records and confessions. I only post verified information, to do anything less would be reckless and a disservice to the child.
