The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office says the injuries to the child are substantial, and are all over his body including his genitalia.

The Father of the child found the bruises on his son and reported it to police.

The 20-year-old mother, Ashley Sneed, was arraigned Tuesday in a Bullitt County courtroom.  Judge Jennifer Porter entered a not guilty plea on Sneed's behalf and placed her bond at $500,000 full cash.  Judge Porter ordered Sneed to have no contact any child under the age of twelve.

Sneed will remain behind bars unless she can post bond and will be back in court on December 28th.
