The child was hurt so badly that doctors feared he was trying to kill her. A member of the National guard has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for injuring his girlfriends young child so severely that doctors at one point speculated he was trying to kill her.
He was initially charged with intentionally causing serious bodily degree felony punishable by up to life in prison. As part of a plea bargain in May he instead pleaded guilty to reckless injury and prosecutors agreed to ask for no more than 15 years in prison.
Child abuse is the type of criminal charge that most people feel is unforgivable. I hate to see these types of crimes & even worse I hate to see people wrongly convicted. If you or a family member has been charged with child abuse contact me a San Antonio criminal attorney with more than 35 years of experience.
