YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — An East Liverpool man was sentenced Tuesday in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court to four years in prison for injuring a baby.
Judge Anthony Donofrio upheld a sentencing recommendation for Steven Wright, 24, who was sentenced after pleading guilty July 27 to a second-degree felony count of child endangering.
In exchange for his plea, another charge of child endangering and a charge of obstruction of justice were dropped.
Wright is accused of injuring a 2-month-old infant following an investigation by Boardman police.
He was indicted by a grand jury in May.
Police would not say what type of injuries the baby received except to say they were serious.
