12/6/17 – A Lomira man was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday for injuring a three-month-old. Andrew Freeman of Milwaukee plead no contest in September to one count of felony Child Abuse. Freeman fractured an infant’s leg and caused bruising to the face and tongue in October of 2015. When the child’s mother left for work he was said to be smiling and happy but when she returned he was blue and lethargic. The infant was taken to a local hospital before being Med-Flighted to Milwaukee. The 44-year-old told investigators that the child was fussy but denied any physical contact. A doctor’s report from Children’s Hospital says the injuries were likely caused by a bottle, spoon or finger being forcibly inserted down the child’s throat or by a blow to the face. That resulted in a one-centimeter laceration in his throat. The left leg fracture was likely caused by a yank or twist or the force from violent shaking. When released, Freeman will be placed on extended supervision for five years.
