Milton woman charged with endangering child

— MILTON — A Milton mom faces two misdemeanors after investigators said her 1-year-old suffered first- and second-degree burns while in her care and she failed to seek medical attention.

Nicole Albertson, 23, of Milton, was charged Tuesday with endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering another person, both misdemeanors, according to court documents. The charges stem from December incidents involving Albertson’s 1-year-old son, police said.

Police interviewed Albertson after the child was treated for non-accidental, first- and second-degree burns on his groin and abdomen, according to court documents.

Albertson blamed a male friend for the burns, but when that friend was interviewed, he said he baby-sat Albertson’s three children without incident and didn’t know anything about burns, police said. A second friend backed up his story, saying the pair left the apartment after an uneventful night,

leaving Nicole and her boyfriend in charge of the children, police said.

Albertson’s boyfriend reported that after the pair returned from an evening out, the 1-year-old began crying at about 9:30 p.m. and continued to cry until 3 or 4 a.m. the next morning, police said. The next morning, Albertson’s boyfriend said when he got the kids up, he noticed burns on the child, police said.

Albertson refused to take the child to the hospital, Albertson’s boyfriend told police.

Albertson next faces a preliminary hearing in front of District Judge Mike Diehl in Milton on May 14 at 1 p.m.

The child has been removed from Albertson’s custody, according to court documents.
