COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A 21-year-old Council Bluffs man has been given 20 years in prison for injuring a baby.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1TRFldQ ) that Rodney Weatherwax was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to two counts of child endangerment causing injury.

A court document says Weatherwax injured the baby at least three times between Sept. 1 and Nov. 30. The 5-month-old child suffered at least 20 fractures. The child’s mother told doctors that Weatherwax punched the child in the face.

Weatherwax says he was intoxicated when the infant was injured.
