JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A father was sentenced to six years in prison for accidentally shooting his baby.
Justin Satterfield, 27, was sentenced to six years, with a three-year minimum mandatory.
In December 2010, Satterfield and his girlfriend, Brandy Purvis, were arrested after their baby was accidentally shot. They had been arguing over a rifle when it went off, hitting their 7-month-old child in the arm and chest. The child has recovered.
In August, Satterfield pleaded guilty to charges of child neglect, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to sell a controlled substance.
Purvis pleaded guilty to a charge of child neglect and was sentenced to time served, 155 days, and to two years of probation.
