Iowa mom who left her baby with her abusive boyfriend gets probation. A Council Bluffs mother was shocked when doctors discovered her 4-month-old baby had 23 fractures throughout his tiny body. The alleged ongoing abuse was by her boyfriend who was known to be violent and a registered rapist. A graphic and detailed court affidavit showed how the baby has been treated in his young life. The doctors said some of the injuries were dated and show months of abuse. When being sentenced Rodney Weatherwax laughed in the judge’s face and said he can do what he likes.
