Rodney Preston Moore will appear for hearing Tuesday before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke.
A man faces felony charges after he slugged his own mother hard enough to send her to the hospital and then said “she deserved what she got.”The son, Rodney Preston Moore, 22, will appear for hearing Tuesday before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke. He could face up to six years in prison if he is convicted on the charge of aggravated domestic assault.Deputies arrived at his mother’s home on Hidden Valley Circle where he, his girlfriend and their two children were living with her.“She had approached her son about being responsible and getting a job to help support his children,” deputy Derek Bowles said of her version of events, the mother noting she was having to support her son and his family since he would not maintain a job.The mother said her son began getting in her face as she was giving him the life advice, getting to the point where she pushed him away.“He suddenly hit his mother with his right closed fist,” said Bowles, noting the blow left a cut over her left eye.Bowles said Moore fled the scene before he arrived. He said the swelling continued over the victim’s eye while he was talking to her.“She passed out and fell to the floor,” Bowles said, noting one eye was constricted and the other dilated suggesting a severe head injury.
