SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Farmersburg man struck a plea deal in a child neglect case.
Eric Tharp was sentenced to 10 years in prison with two years suspended.
He also received two years of probation.
That's all according to court documents.
An investigation started last August after a three-month-old infant suffered broken bones, including arms, legs, and ribs.
Police say the child was in Tharp's care when the injuries happened.
Tharp was initially charged with neglect of a dependent and domestic battery resulting in serious bodily injury.
As a part of the plea, the neglect charge was dismissed.
