Man sentenced to 40 years for child abuse

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A man with a history of child abuse will now spend 40 years behind bars.

22-year-old Michael Schneider admitted that he abused a Lamesa toddler in 2006. This week, he pleaded guilty to a first degree felony of injury to a child.

He still faces charges in Lubbock for a similar case this past March, where he sent an infant to intensive care.
