Albany man sentenced for child abuse

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man is sentenced to seven years in prison, and eight on probation, for beating and biting a 3 year old in 2011. He also ruptured the little girl's eardrum.

33 year old Jamie Jackson pled guilty 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 presented additional evidence at a hearing. The court reduced the original sentence, which was ten years to serve in prison.
