Man sentenced to prison for abusing 4-year-old
Boy suffered brain damage
A man from Madison will spend 10 years in prison after being convicted of child abuse.
Prosecutors said 27-year-old Jerry Ehrett physically abused his former girlfriend's four-year-old son.
Ehrett claimed the boy fell while riding a bike in August 2011, but documents show he pushed the boy into a kitchen counter.
The boy suffered brain damage, nearly died and will require lifelong care.
