LIMA — A Delphos teenager who police and prosecutors say severely beat his girlfriend’s 2-month-old daughter entered pleas of guilty Monday to felonious assault charges that could land him in prison for more than three decades.
Anthony Denoyer, 19, will be sentenced Aug. 10 after pleading guilty to the four second-degree felony counts. He could face as few as two years behind bars when Judge Jeffrey Reed makes his ruling, or the full sentence would put him behind bars for more than 30 years. A pre-sentence investigation was ordered by the court.
Denoyer was indicted by an Allen County grand jury in December on the four felonious assault counts, two of which included a specification alleging permanent disabling harm to a child less than the age of 10. He also was indicted on four counts of endangering children, also second-degree felonies.
