A West Fargo man was sentenced in Cass County District Court to seven years in prison for injuring a 4-month-old boy.

Lawrence St. John Jr., who was 20 when he was charged in August with aggravated assault, pleaded guilty to the charge this week.


He told authorities he picked up the boy by his throat, threw him face down on a bed and then picked him up by the back of the neck and shoved him into the floor, according to court records.
