APOPKA, Fla. – An Orange County jury found a man accused of using a hair dryer and hot oil to burn a toddler guilty of aggravated child abuse.
Darlane Toussaint was also found guilty last week of neglect of a child for burning and beating his girlfriend's 1-year-old child.
His arrest report said the 24-year-old Toussaint shook the child violently when he wouldn't stop crying.
Police also said he used a blow dryer on the boy and smashed his chest and back with his fist.
During the trial, he testified that the boy was burned while he was giving him a bath in an Apopka home and turned on the water.
Toussaint will be sentenced Nov. 26.
