Father could spend up to 13 years in prison for breaking infant's skull

 

Michael Hogg was sentenced to at least 63 months after pleading guilty in July to aggravated assault, child endangerment

EASTON, Pa. | A Northampton County man could spend up to 13 years in state prison after admitting to breaking his infant’s skull with a baby bottle.

Northampton County Judge Abraham Kassis on Friday sentenced Michael Hogg to 63 to 156 months in state prison after pleading guilty in July to single felony counts of aggravated assault and child endangerment. As part of a negotiated plea, prosecutors withdrew additional charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Tatum Wilson said the 29-year-old Hogg is to have no contact with his daughter, while he’s serving his prison term. The now 15-month-old child is doing well but is taking seizure medication as a result of the assault, she said.
