South Dakota man sentenced for abusing infant daughter

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City man convicted of causing severe brain damage in his 6-week-old daughter has been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison.

Forty-two-year-old Patrick White Face was charged with aggravated child abuse after his daughter was flown to a Denver hospital in March 2011. Prosecutor Josh Hendrickson says the child has permanent internal injuries and was not expected to live but did survive. She now is in medical foster care.

White Face also has been ordered to pay more than $435,000 in restitution. His attorney plans to appeal both the conviction and the sentence.
