KINGSTON, N.Y. -- A Kingston man admits to assaulting his 11-week-old son.

Dennis Appollonia, 21, said he squeezed the child out of frustration. The child's mother took him to the hospital in January for complaints involving the child's chest cavity. After further tests and evaluations, doctors said the child had fractured ribs.

Appollonia pleaded guilty to second degree assault. He's expected to be sentenced to seven years in prison. Orders of protection will also be issued for the child and the child's mother.
