Stephens Co. Man Sentenced in Child Abuse

Posted: Updated:

STEPHENS CO., Okla_ A Stephens County man has been sentenced for beating his teenage granddaughter with a 2x4 and a baseball bat.

 50-year-old Jerry Aldridge pleaded guilty to felony child abuse in a Stephens County court this week. He was a given a 20 years suspended sentence with credit for time served. Aldridge will also be supervised for one year.

 Back in October, witnesses say Aldridge spanked his granddaughter with a 2x4 before hitting her in the knees with a baseball bat. He was also charged with assault and battery, after repeatedly punching her 18-year-old boyfriend in the face.
