Beacon Journal | 09/13/2005 | Father gets eight years in assault of baby boy
This has been a truly bizzare case, with the grandmother ending up with custody after the state had it for awhile and wanted to pull the plug. Matthew Stein is in a coma, will eventually die and the father cannot be prosecuted for the death.
The prosecutors held out as long as they could and finally had to do something or not charge him with any crime. I would be surprised if this guy makes it out of prison - this has been a high profile case and no doubt someone on the inside will make his life a living hell.
