Luke Kerwin will be sentenced at Derby Crown Court tomorrow

A FATHER who lost his temper and shook his fourth-month-old son so hard he now suffers 30 seizures a day will today be punished for his actions.

Luke Kerwin, of Athol Close, Sinfin, appeared at Derby Crown Court, sitting at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court, yesterday.

The 25-year-old had previously pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm to his son, Mason, by shaking him in April 2012.

Judge Jonathan Gosling heard the facts of the case and Kerwin’s mitigation and adjourned sentencing to the same court today.
