A Utica man was charged back on Dec. 5 as a result of an investigation into the abuse of a disabled child.
Utica Police Inv. Eric Scorzafava and Sheriff's Inv. C.J. Paravati said Philip J. Kistner, 36, was charged with one count of first-degree endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, a class E felony.
Kistner was arraigned in Utica City Court and was sent to county jail in lieu of $2,500 bail. Scorzafava said the case has now been referred to the county District Attorney's Office for further investigation. Additional charges are pending, he said.
