PLYMOUTH — A Plymouth man was sentenced to more than a decade in prison on Thursday after he pleaded guilty to battering a toddler in November.
Marshall Superior Court I Judge Robert Bowen sentenced 25-year-old Jamie Elsea to 12 years in prison after Elsea pleaded guilty last month to aggravated battery.
The charge is a Level 3 felony punishable by three to 16 years behind bars, with the advisory sentence being nine years.
In an agreement with prosecutors, charges of attempted murder and neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury were dismissed.
