Bellefonte Man Pleads Guilty to Infant Abuse

Authorities in Centre County say a Bellefonte man who pleaded guilty to “severely” abusing an infant last year was sentenced Monday morning.

Court officials say Clayton Dobson, 28, was sentenced to serve 4 to 8 years in state prison, followed by two years of probation.

Dobson was charged last July after police say the five-week-old child was taken to Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, in Danville, with “serious bodily injuries.”

According to online court records, Dobson later pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault of a child and child endangerment.
