GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A Grand Rapids man who admitted to violently shaking his infant son is going to prison.

A judge Tuesday sentenced Brett Walsh to up to nine years in prison. Walsh has also agreed to terminate his parental rights.

In June, Walsh pleaded guilty to first degree child abuse. Detectives say he shook his three month old so hard, it left him critically injured.
