On January 23, 2018 the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s office was contacted by hospital staff and notified that they were currently treating a 2 month old baby boy for a femur fracture to his right leg.

Both the family member and Pellegrin stated that prior to 12:30 a.m. the baby was moving both his legs and did not appear to have any injuries. Detectives observed both the family member and Pellegrin to have inconsistent stories when trying to explain what occurred that morning.

Terry J. Pellegrin, Jr., 32 from Lake Charles was arrested the same day and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 2nd degree cruelty to a juvenile. Judge David Ritchie set his bond at $500,000.
