Iowa Man Sentenced To 10 Years For Injuring Daughters
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) A 23-year-old Sioux City man has been given 10 years in prison for slamming his two young daughters' heads against a floor.
On Wednesday Christopher Schmidt pleaded guilty to two counts of child endangerment resulting in serious injury. Prosecutors dismissed another child endangerment count and three counts of willful injury in return for Schmidt's pleas.
Court documents say Schmidt's daughters were 2 years old and 7 months old when they were injured last October. Police say Schmidt acknowledged grabbing the girls by their faces and slamming their heads into the floor, fracturing their skulls.
