Irmo Police Charge Man With Assaulting His Infant

The Irmo Police Department charged Jimmy Frederick Hollingsworth, Jr. (24) with Unlawful Conduct Toward a Child stemming from an incident that was reported in March 2022. 

Irmo Investigators were called to the Prisma Children’s Hospital after a 5-week-old was brought in for dehydration.  The staff observed injuries that indicated possible abuse.  After conducting multiple interviews as well as consulting with medical professionals, it was determined that Hollingsworth, who is the child’s father, was alone with the child when the injuries were sustained that resulted in dehydration which required medical treatment. 

Hollingsworth was booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center last night.  Unlawful Conduct Toward a Child is a felony and carries up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
