A Plainview man is sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to injury to a child. 23-year-old Ponsiano Martinez was arrested in May 2003 for allegedly shaking his 3-month-old son, leaving the baby with severe injuries.
Plainview police say Martinez shook the child because the infant would not stop crying. Monday, Martinez pleaded guilty. The child suffered loss of vision in one eye, partial loss in the other, and delayed development.
