Man gets 10 years for beating baby blind

|

BRIDGEPORT – A 20-year-old city man, accused of beating his 8-week-old son so severely he left the boy blind and unable to walk, was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison.
“The unspeakable happened to an innocent baby,” Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin told Luis Carattini. “Hurting your own child enough to blind him, I don’t know how you will be able to live with that but I could give you 100 years, or even a 1,000 years and it wouldn’t make this child better.”
The judge then sentenced Carattini to the plea bargain of 18 years, suspended after he serves 10 years in prison and followed by five years’ probation for first-degree assault and risk of injury to a child.
Carattini told the judge he had nothing to say.

    I hope he’s never allowed near the child again. 10 years is pretty short considering that the poor child will never be able to see for the rest of his life. And who knows if he’ll ever be able to walk. The bum should be held liable for all medical costs.

    Why isn’t this scumbag in jail for the rest of his worthless life?

    With any luck the same thing he did to his 8 week old infant will be done to him. Put him in the general population in prison.
    Only then will justice be served.

    Such a terrible tragedy for this innocent child. It is the child who will serve a life sentence of disability needlessly — where was the mother?
