CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – An eastern Iowa man who caused his baby son’s brain injury has been given five years in prison.

Linn County District Court records say 20-year-old Matthew Judd, of Marion, was sentenced Tuesday in Cedar Rapids. He’d pleaded guilty to child endangerment causing injury after prosecutors lowered the charge.

The child’s mother says he’s partially recovered but still is undergoing therapy for the brain injury.
