Lewiston, Mich. — A mother and father have been charged with child abuse after disturbing evidence was found on a nanny cam.

Michigan State Police discovered the evidence through nanny cam video dating back to May of 2017. The abuse was not reported to police until the investigation began in January.  Troopers from the Cadillac Post were contacted by the Department of Human Services about possible child abuse. Alpena Post troopers picked up the case when it was discovered that the residence was in Montmorency County.

The film shows 24–year–old Devon Hubbard of Lewiston abusing his 6-month-old son. Troopers also found evidence that the boy’s mother failed to protect him despite being aware of what was going on. 26-year-old Tiffine Jingles would have Hubbard watch the victim without supervision on a weekly basis. The parents were arrested on March 4.

The Montmorency County prosecutor charged Hubbard with one count of child abuse in the 2nd degree. Jingles was charged with one count of child abuse in the 4th degree.

The child victim is safe and has been placed in foster care. Both subjects have been arraigned in the 88th District Court.
