(Learfield News Service/St. Cloud, MN) — A Buffalo man has been sentenced to eight-and-a-half years in prison for critically injuring an infant last March in Waite Park.
A Stearns County judge sentenced 22-year-old Cody Anderson Thursday after he pleaded guilty to first-degree assault of the six-month-old child.
Officers found the infant unconscious and having difficulty breathing. Doctors at the hospital determined the baby had bleeding on the brain caused by abuse.
Anderson told investigators he was the child’s caregiver the night before and admitted to drinking a lot of whiskey.
