GENEVA, Neb. – A 26-year-old Geneva man convicted this summer of causing his infant son’s death has been sentenced to up to 80 years in prison.
The Nebraska Attorney General’s office said in a news release that Anthony Long was sentenced Tuesday in Fillmore County District Court. He received 50 to 60 years for child abuse resulting in death and 10 to 20 years for a count of child abuse resulting in serious injury.
Prosecutors say Long abused his 5-week-old son on April 26, 2014. Doctors had told police that the boy had brain injuries consistent with being shaken. The baby died June 3.
