WAHOO, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old Ashland man has been imprisoned for injuring his 2-month-old son.
The office of Saunders County Attorney Steven Twohig (TOO’-ihg) says Scott Neemann was given 20 to 25 years in prison for child abuse.
Online court records say the boy had breathing problems and was taken to an Omaha hospital on June 19 last year. Doctors discovered the boy had a skull fracture, a broken leg and other injuries consistent with being shaken.
A court affidavit says Neemann told an Ashland police officer about punching and shaking the child. Neemann told the officer he was frustrated because the baby wouldn’t stop crying.
Court records say Neemann was sentenced on April 13.
