Leif Knutson / FOX 9 News

ST. PAUL, Minn. - A St. Paul man admitted to shaking his son so hard he caused the child permanent brain damage.
Jeffrey Allen Davis, 33, pleaded guilty in Ramsey County Court to malicious punishment of a child Tuesday.
Davis claims he shook the baby for 10 to 15 seconds, and that the boy's head jostled front to back several times. In describing the March incident, Davis told police his 6-week-old son's head moved "like a bobble-head doll."
Davis said he did it in frustration during his son's screaming.

Prosecutors say the boy suffered permanent brain injury and damage to his eyesight.
