CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man has been sentenced to more than a year in prison after pleading guilty to shattering his 5-year-old son’s femur.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2aoqdC6 ) that prosecutors say the man has a decade’s worth of violent criminal history and asked for a sentence of four to six years in prison.

Defense attorney Shelly Flot argued for probation instead, saying her client is deeply remorseful and has improved his life since the incident 11 months ago. The man said during his sentencing hearing that he’s taken parenting, relationship and anger and stress management classes while on bond.

Laramie County District Judge Thomas Campbell imposed an 18- to 36-month prison term. Campbell says the man did a “horrible” thing and isn’t a proper candidate for probation.
