WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A West Fargo man has been sentenced to serve about three months in jail for fracturing the skull of his 7-week-old son last August.

Chance Severson initially said the baby fell out of a bouncy seat and hit his head. He later pleaded guilty to felony child abuse.

WDAY-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2a2mYQL ) that Severson was ordered to serve 1 ½ years of probation following his 90-day jail term. If he violates probation, he could be sent to prison for 10 years.
