Dad gets jail time for abusing newborn son (Ottawa County, Michigan)

Dad is identified as JUSTIN MCINTYRE.

Father sentenced for child abuse

OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An Ottawa County man was in court Monday to receive his sentence for critically injuring his infant son.

Last month a jury found Justin McIntyre guilty of second-degree child abuse.

Police say McIntyre violently shook his six-week-old son Bentley back in August, causing critical head injuries.

Bentley spent several weeks in the hospital before going home to continue his recovery.

Monday McIntyre received 19 months to 120 months in prison, with credit for 157 days served. Restitution will be determined at a later date.
