A man has been jailed over an attack on a baby boy who suffered bleeding on the brain and a fractured rib.
Lee Tandy, 35, of Mardale Road, Worthing, West Sussex, was found guilty of two counts of GBH and also child cruelty.
The three-month-old baby was admitted to hospital in May 2011 with several injuries.
The judge at Chichester Crown Court sentenced Tandy to five-and-a-half years in prison.
Sussex Police said the baby had also been admitted to hospital twice before.
Det Con Keith Fifield said: "This was a good result after what has been a long and complex investigation.
"Tandy inflicted grievous injuries on the baby, who was just a few months old at the time."
