OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. -- Travis Hogle, 21, plead guilty to one count of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury Tuesday. 

 

According to reports, Hogle fractured a 5-month old boy's leg after an argument with the child's mother

at their residence on Peter's Run Road last April. 

 

Court documents state Hogle then allegedly grabbed the baby by the ankle and flipped him onto his stomach.

 

The boy was later hospitalized with a fractured leg.

 

According to the Ohio County Sheriff's Department, Hogle admitted to using excessive force, but did not realize he had harmed the child.

 

Hogle was sentenced Tuesday morning to 2-10 years in prison, a $1,000 fine and must now register with the West Virginia State Police child abuse and neglect registry.
