Man who bashed baby, leaving him disabled, jailed for 13 years

A man who bashed his infant stepson so severely it left him permanently disabled has been sentenced to 13 years behind bars with a non-parole period of eight and a half years.

The 33-year-old Sydney man was sentenced in Penrith Local Court on Thursday over the horrifying attack.

A court heard the young boy suffered at least three acts of violence after he was left at home in the care of his step father for only an hour.
