A Youngstown man arrested after authorities say he repeatedly beat a child has been sentenced to prison.
James Jennings III, 26, was sentenced to two years in prison Wednesday by Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Maureen Sweeney.
U.S. Marshals arrested Jennings on Jean Street last April, after the Mahoning County Grand Jury indicted him on three counts of endangering children and one count of domestic violence.
Investigators say Jennings is accused of beating a 4-year-old boy several times over a four month time span.
In March, Jennings pleaded guilty to one count of endangering children and one count of domestic violence. Two other child endangering charges were dismissed.
