LOMA LINDA – The Riverside Sheriff’s Department deputy who posted bail after being arrested for child abuse against his 3-month-old daughter has been rearrested.
On Friday, June 29, 2018, the Crimes Against Children Investigators and the Deputy District Attorney met. During the meeting, the Deputy District attorney was able to review the case, leading Jason Gordon Wenker, 30, of Loma Linda to have 12 felony counts relating to child abuse against him. Among the charges against him, there are six counts of Willful Cruelty to a Child and six counts of Inflict Great Bodily Injury on a Child under five years of age. As a result of the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s office filing these charges, an arrest warrant was issued for Wenker. His bail was also set for $750,000.
Wenker, who was released on $100,000 bail the day following his June 25, 2018 arrest, was at a relatives home in Perris. Wenker was arrested without incident and was booked at the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino. He is scheduled to be arraigned at the San Bernardino Superior Court on Monday, July 2, 2018. The 3-month-old victim remains hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of the Loma Linda University Medical Center for treatment of her fractured skull and other older injuries, all in various stages of healing.
