TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man has been sentenced to one year in jail and 15
years’ probation for child abuse.
David Michael Hollenbeck pleaded guilty in January to child-abuse charges after
he dropped his 7-week-old son in the shower in December 2011.
Hollenbeck called 911 to report he was giving the baby a shower when the child
began having what appeared to be seizures.
The Arizona Daily Star reported a CT scan showed the baby
had a skull fracture and subdural bleeding on both sides of the brain.
When asked about the differences in his story and the injuries, Hollenbeck
admitted he dropped the baby in the shower and caught him by the leg, but the
infant hit his head on the tub.
Authorities said the child has fully recovered.
