Columbus Man To Be Sentenced For Abusing Four Month Old Son

Posted: 18 July, 2013

COLUMBUS (AP) - A Columbus man is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 16 for abusing his 4-month-old son. Twenty-five-year-old Jeremy Hetrick made a deal with prosecutors and pleaded no contest to a reduced abuse charge earlier this week. Prosecutors say Hetrick had abused the infant at a Columbus apartment he shared with the boy's mother. Court records say Hetrick called 911 on Jan. 22 to report that his son had stopped breathing. Police Capt. Bret Strecker stated in an affidavit that doctors later said the boy had bleeding on the brain and three healed rib fractures. Strecker said Hetrick acknowledged that he'd lost patience when his son became fussy that night, had squeezed the boy and then head-butted him very hard.
