A Des Moines man, who is accused in the beating of his infant son, was released from the Polk County Jail today. Nineteen-year-old Jonas Neiderbach posted a $50,000 bond after a judge cleared the way for his release earlier this week.
Polk County Judge Douglas Staskal ordered Neiderbach to stay away from all children under the age of 14, including his son, as a condition of his release. Neiderbach and the infant’s mother, Jherica Richardson, were charged last week after their seven-week-old child was rushed to a hospital with head injuries and broken ribs.
Ethan Neiderbach remains at the hospital, but officials are not providing updates on his condition. Richardson is ineligible for pre-trial release because she was on probation for forgery at the time of her arrest.
