A man was sentenced Monday on two child endangering charges in Defiance County Common Pleas Court after a 6-week-old infant he was caring for suffered fractures to her arm, leg and ribs.
A judge sentenced 21 year old Patrick Goudy of Defiance to 36 months in jail on each count, to be served consecutively, for a total of 72 months. Goudy will be eligible for early release after serving five years.
Goudy pleaded guilty to both charges in April.
The sentence imposed by the judge was greater than the state’s recommendation of 54 months.
Goudy was remanded to the custody of the Defiance County Sheriff’s Office following Monday’s hearing.
The child is currently in foster care.
