ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

An Albany man is sentenced to ten years in prison for beating and biting a 3 year old,  but that sentence could change.

33 year old Jamie Jackson pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated battery.  Prosecutors say Jackson attacked his girlfriend's daughter in March 2011, rupturing her ear drum with punches to the head, and biting her legs.

Dougherty D. A. Greg Edwards said, There is going to be additional evidence to be presented at a hearing. Actually the court has the option of keeping it the same.  Reducing it. Or increasing it."  

Jackson's sentencing hearing will be held August 26th.
