TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A 21-year-old father who broke his infant son's clavicle, arm, leg and rib bones was sentenced to two years in jail and five years of probation today in Pima County Superior Court.

Justin Alber pleaded guilty to two of those child abuse counts last month and was facing probation or between five and 30 years in prison.

The infant was 7 months old at the time of the abuse. Alber and the baby's mother took the child to the hospital after he was having trouble moving his arms.
