VICTORVILLE • A 20-year-old Hesperia father was sentenced to six months in jail for abusing his 2-month-old boy.
Gilberto Beltran accepted the prosecution’s offer and pleaded guilty to one felony count of child abuse. Victorville Superior Court Judge John Tomberlin sentenced him Friday.
Tomberlin put Beltran on four-year probation and ordered him to complete a child abuse prevention and anger management programs.
In December, the baby’s grandmother heard a cracking sound from the child’s back and urged 20-year-old mother, Karina Venegas, to take the boy to the emergency room, according to sheriff’s officials. Doctors reported signs of ongoing child abuse, such as broken ribs and a broken clavicle.
Beltran and Venegas told a detective the boy began screaming while they were watching TV. Beltran said he panicked, thinking the baby wasn’t breathing, and shook the baby before Venegas yelled at him to stop. Venegas told investigators that Beltran often got frustrated when the child cried and didn’t calm down.
Venegas was also charged with felony child abuse and is scheduled to appear in Victorville court on April 17.
