A Florida man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for shaking his infant daughter so violently that it left her with permanent brain damage.
The Ledger reports that 30-year-old Delavon Domique Johnson was sentenced Friday. A Polk County jury convicted him in January of aggravated child abuse with great bodily harm.
Authorities say Johnson had been left alone with the 3-month-old girl in December 2013 when she suffered hemorrhaging in her brain. Johnson told detectives that he became frustrated while feeding her and began to shake her.
