SBS: Eight year sentence

INDIANAPOLIS -- A 23-year-old man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for abusing his girlfriend's 10-month-old daughter.
Avonte Yarbrough was arrested in January 2009 after the girl suffered bleeding on the brain and other injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome, Indianapolis police said.
He was convicted of battery this year and sentenced on Friday.
In court, family members said the girl, now more than 2 years old, is not walking or talking, and that doctors said it's unclear how she'll progress over the years.
