A Derry man was sentenced on Monday to serve one year less a day to two years less a day for breaking the leg of a 25-day-old child while changing the infant's diaper in July 2010.

Nathan Alan McCrary, 25, pleaded guilty on Monday to simple assault and reckless endangerment before Judge John E. Blahovec.

McCrary told the judge he was changing the infant's diaper when he apparently put too much pressure on the baby's leg or moved it too far.

“It sounds pretty strange,” Blahovec replied.

McCrary was ordered to complete parenting classes and to have no contact with the victim except as advised by family court. He has been in jail since April 20 and was credited for time served.
