A New London man is being held on a 25-hundred dollar cash bond following a felony child abuse charge in Waupaca County Court. 37 year old Matthew A. Young is also charged with felony bail jumping, after an alleged altercation with an 8 year old child last Wednesday in New London. The complaint alleges Young tried to force the child to eat a slice of bread by shoving it in his mouth. The complaint also alleges Young spanked the child, leaving marks on the child’s backside. The bail jumping count stems from bond conditions on a charge of possession of child pornography from earlier this year. If convicted, Young could face up to 9 and a half years in prison. He is due back in court next Wednesday.
