Father get 7 years for abuse of infant daughter

 LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A La Crosse father who severely injured his infant daughter is going to prison.

On Thursday, 31-year-old Gavin Attoe was sentenced to seven years in prison.

 La Crosse County Assistant District Attorney Crystal Jensen says it's too soon to tell whether the child will suffer permanent damage from the abuse inflicted by her father. Jensen says the 3-month-old baby was subjected to "repeated systematic torture" at the hands of her father between October 2010 and February 2011. Court records indicate Attoe fractured the skull, ribs, arms, and legs of his infant daughter.

Attoe was charged with five counts of child abuse. He pleaded no contest to two of those five counts.
