Sherman man sentenced to 30 years for nearly killing infant

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - Jurors convicted 26-year-old Damon Finley Thursday of aggravated assault and sentenced him to three decades behind bars for seriously injuring a three-year-old baby girl last January..

The baby survived, but suffered serious injuries including head trauma, broken ribs and seizures.

Prosecutors say these injuries were caused by abuse at the hands of Finley.

"Our office will pursue these cases to see that people who injure children are held accountable," prosecutor Kerye Ashmore said.

Finley must serve 15 years before he's eligible for parole.
