ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A St. Paul man has admitted shaking his
infant son so hard he caused the baby permanent brain damage.
Thirty-three-year-old Jeffrey Allen Davis pleaded guilty Tuesday
in Ramsey County Court to malicious punishment of a child.
According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Davis says the shaking
lasted 10 to 15 seconds, and that the boy's head moved "back and
forth" several times.
After the shaking last March, Davis told police his 6-week-old
son's head moved "like a bobble-head doll." Davis said he was
frustrated by his son's screaming.
Prosecutor Juan Hoyos says the boy suffered permanent brain
injury, including damage to his eyesight.
Sentencing is set for Feb. 25.
