A Hurricane man has been sentenced in a horrific case of abuse involving a 9-month-old boy. Dakota Woolsey, 25, has been sentenced to up to 16 years in prison for physically abusing the infant son of his girlfriend, as well as mentally abusing the infant's 3-year-old brother. According to a probable cause statement, the baby showed signs of having been choked and had bruises on his chest, neck, and back. Officials also discovered fractured ribs and fractured lower leg bones that seem to be older injuries.
Defense attorney's say Woolsey understands the seriousness of what he did and wants to get help.
