FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) — A judge has ordered a young Utah father who pleaded guilty to child abuse to serve 150 days in jail.
The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports that Judge Robert Dale said Thursday in a Farmington courtroom that he doesn't think 26-year-old Ryan Keith Knight has taken responsibility for what happened.
Knight was arrested by Woods Cross police in June 2013 and charged with child abuse of his 6-month-old son. Authorities said Knight was responsible for multiple fractures to the boy's leg, a fractured shoulder blade and a bruised head and ear.
Knight's attorney, Ryan Bushell, said his client didn't intend to hurt his son, and was only playing too rough with the boy.
But Judge Dale noted that Knight's explanation for what happened doesn't line up with the severe injuries.
