Grandmother sentenced for severe abuse of baby


KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) -- A Kenosha grandmother is sentenced to 15 years in prison for severely abusing her young grandson who's no longer able to eat or walk.

Debra Crespo, 46, earlier pleaded no contest to felony child abuse for causing brain injuries to her 10-month-old grandson. Crepso told investigators she threw the child down on his bed because he wouldn't sleep.

During sentencing in Kenosha County Thursday, the boy's mother, Nicole Marsh, told the judge that every day is a struggle for her son, now 18 months.

The Kenosha News says Crepso's attorney asked the judge to give his client a second chance. But Judge Barbara Kulka told Crepso her grandson has no second chances, his life has been destroyed.
