A Toledo father is facing 8 years in prison for shaking his infant son so hard it caused a brain injury.
24-year-old Jonathan Dominguez pleaded no contest and was found guilty on child endangering charges Monday.
On August 13, Dominguez lost his temper when his four month old son would not stop crying.
The father squeezed his infant son so hard it left bruises on the child's back and fractured three ribs.
The next day, he shook his son with so much force it caused bleeding on the brain.
The child was in hospice for sometime but is back home with his mother.
Dominguez will be sentenced December 28.
