He also will be placed on five years of probation upon release from custody, his driving privileges were suspended for 60 days, and he must reimburse Nationwide Insurance almost $2,500 in coverage paid for the automobile.

    Um that isnt his sentence for the death of the baby…. if they rush to prosecute and sentence him he could get off. They are keeping him in jail. Thats a good thing. More charges will follow.
