Yonkers man gets 20 years for fatally beating 2-year-old sonPosted: Updated:
The man who admitted to beating his 2-year-old toddler to death last Christmas Eve was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years in state prison.
Westchester County Judge Barry Warhit called 26-year-old Blair Robinson “heartless” before sentencing him for beating his son Alex to death.
As part of a plea deal, the Yonkers father pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter back in August.
Prosecutors say Robinson confessed to kicking and beating the baby in the head and torso last Christmas Eve at his Maple Avenue home. They say what's equally horrific is that Robinson didn't take the child to the hospital until hours later.
Autopsy results later showed the baby died of blunt force trauma to the head and torso.
Robinson was almost thrown out of court Wednesday after he kept interrupting the prosecutor. However, he had nothing to say when the judge gave him an opportunity to speak before he was sent to prison.
The prosecutor and judge said Robinson has shown no remorse for his actions, but his defense attorney disputed their opinions.
The court also issued an order of protection for Robinson’s 1-year-old daughter, who is now in the custody of the county.
