An Evansville man received a 16-year sentence in Elkhart County after admitting to inflicting severe injury on a pair of one-month-old twins.
23-year-old Christopher Voegel won’t spend time behind bars. Instead, it’s home detention and probation after he pleaded guilty to two counts of neglect of a dependent causing serious injury.
Voegel admitted in July that he had endangered the children despite being their caretaker.
The Elkhart Truth reports the mother of the children told the court that the limb fractures and other injuries they suffered have affected their development.
She wasn’t happy with Voegel’s attorney’s reasoning that his client was a young father and under a lot of stress.
She also wasn’t happy that he only had to spend a few weeks in jail after he was arrested.
