A 2-year-old boy will have to wait longer for his kidney transplant after his dad, who was discovered to be a match, violated the terms of his probation.
As AJC reports, the surgery for Anthony Dickerson Jr. was scheduled to take place on October 3 at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. That changed when the father, 26-year-old Anthony Dickerson, was arrested for a parole violation last month.
Dickerson was first arrested in 2011 on misdemeanor theft charges and a first-degree forgery charge. He was arrested for violating his probation in September and charged with possession of a firearm.
While incarcerated, Emory Hospital wrote a letter on his behalf to request that he be given blood work and pre-operative testing for his son, who was born without kidneys.
But in light of the parole violation, the hospital told the child’s mother, Carmellia Burgess, that it was changing its mind. The hospital said it

A search is underway for a “person of interest” after three people were shot to death and another survived a stabbing. The violent attacks happened at two separate homes in Ohio. There was also a search out for a missing child, 8-year-old Devin Holston, who lived in one of the homes. However, that missing-child alert was later cancelled.

After an Ohio woman scalded her 4-year-old stepson to death in a bathtub, both she and her husband, the boy’s father, were convicted in his death, Crime Online reported.
The boy’s father, Robert Ritchie, 32, was sentenced to seven years in prison on Tuesday for failing to get medical help for his son, Austin Cooper, in his 2016 death. His wife, Anna Ritchie, was previously sentenced to 18 years to life after pleading guilty to charges of murder, involuntary manslaughter, felonious assault and endangering children charges.
Prosecutors alleged that Anna Ritchie held Austin in 135-degree water for 20-25 minutes because she resented being his primary caregiver, according to WXIX.
Robert Ritchie came home shortly after the assault and did not care for his son, prosecutors claimed.
“The question that kept me awake at night is: why did you not check on this little boy, your son, Austin, as he lay there for
