Torrez sentenced in child abuse case

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla._A Duncan man who admitted to abusing his 3-month-old son will spend the next 15 years in prison.

Ricky Torrez was charged with child abuse last April after his son was taken to the hospital with a skull fracture and brain swelling. Torrez said he placed the infant on a changing table too hard, causing the baby to hit his head because he was frustrated with his two-year-old daughter.

A judge sentenced Torrez to 30 years in prison with 15 years suspended.
