GRAND HAVEN, Mich – An Ottawa County man will serve between 19 and 120 months behind bars after being found guilty of second-degree child abuse.

Justin McIntyre was sentenced today in Grand Haven District Court.

Bentley McIntyre, at just six-weeks-old, was flown to a Grand Rapids hospital on Aug. 4, at about 1 a.m. An investigation of the infant’s injuries, which included serious brain injuries, led authorities to believe the child had been severely shaken.
