Sparta man enters plea in infant abuse case

SPARTA, Mich.-- A Sparta man will be sentenced next month for abusing his then three-week-old son.

David Steiger, 20, entered a no contest plea in Kent County Circuit Court Monday, the day his trial was to start.

Prosecutors say Steiger broke 19 of his newborn son's bones last June.  Steiger admitted to pushing on the baby's legs until he heard a pop.

He faces up to ten years in prison.
