SCOTTSBLUFF, Nebraska — A 25-year-old Scottsbluff man has been sentence to up to 30 years in prison for severely beating his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.
The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1GP3B8V ) that Cody Olbricht was sentenced Friday to 18 to 30 years in prison.
Olbricht was found guilty in March of intentional child abuse resulting in serious injury.
Prosecutors say the girl was taken to a hospital in September by her grandmother. Doctors determined the girl had several injuries, including a lacerated liver, brain bleeding, a broken rib and bruises covering her body. Scottsbluff police say there was little food in the home, and the girl's clothes and bedding were stained with urine.
The girl's mother, 25-year-old Cassandra Miller, is awaiting trial on a charge of negligent child abuse.
