Now 11 News had learned Duncan was arrested again and is being held in the Mesa County Jail on several charges, including cruelty to a child, possession of a dangerous weapon and burglary

He was re-arrested Wednesday night.

    the mother does not deserve to have her kids!!!!!!from what i have read this man had abused her and was a convicted felon before any of this happened. what kind of a woman thinks that it is ok to leave children with a man like that? not a good one i can tell you that.she is just as, if not more guilty as justin, she should be in prison right along with him! women like her should never be allowed to have children in the first place because she sure does not deserve them.

    Let me start by saying there is NO contact between justin and i at all, and Sarah in rock springs you are very disturbing because you wanted the man to come live with you, so let him be on his way to you honey.... and to facethefacts, People make bad choices in life, Justin never never endagered my children until this night, no I was not out with my friends drinking lol, I went to dinner, either way it doesnt matter, you all are sick for taking this and turning it into a big happy drama session! Enjoy yourselves... you are both sick people!

    So Rock springs, how did the boy get bruised up? Com on! Justin did it and IF the boys mother is still carrying on a relationship with him, you are right that is wrong! You have to protect your children, but besides that Justin is in jail for Stealing as well, so Rock Springs you arent any better than Brittany because you happen to know a lot about this case, so you seem to be having a relationship with this FELON too! so what does that make you. face it girls he is ot cute and he obviouslly has anger issues, leave this one alone!

    Rock Springs, how could you imply that Justin was innocent? He admittedly hurt the boy via his tv interview. As far as the mother goes, you are right about her. She is as guilty as Justin is for leaving her baby with a known felon who she had already accused of abusing her to start with. The department of human services needs to look at the criminal act of child endangerment on the mothers part the same as on Justins. Neither of them are innocent! The only innocent one in the whole mess is the little boy.

    The thing is, that I know Justin and he is innocent. The woman who had him arrested is visiting him in jail right now, and as for the text, that was an apology for not calling the ambulance because he thought the child was okay. The mother is a piece of crap for knowing about the incident but didn't come home right away because she was drinking with her friends. He turns him in for suspected child abuse and then turns around to further a relationship with him?? Doesn't make any sense...So brittany, if you read this, you either need to admit that justin didn't do anything, or you're a terrible effing mother!!

    He should have been kept in jail a long time ago ! Why do let them back out to hurt more people? I hope they keep him for good this time, he is nothing but scum !

    Of course he denies it! all guilty crooks deny wrong doing! but if you have been following this story you can see that he admitted to hurting the child by texting the mother saying "I didn't meant to!"

    Good let him rot! he is a liar and a theif. If he didnt hurt the child why did he on a text message say to the Mother " I didnt mean to do it!" he needs to be gone! POOF! People who inflilct pain on children are Scum! a waste of Skin!
