Maine man gets 18 months for assault on infant

The Associated Press

BANGOR — A Carmel man authorities say beat his girlfriend's 1-year-old daughter in the parking lot of a Bangor hospital has been sentenced to 18 months in jail.

Scott Peavey was also sentenced Tuesday to two years of probation and ordered not to drink alcohol.

The 30-year-old Peavey pleaded guilty last month to charges of assault on a child.

Police say Peavey struck the girl several times in the face in a car in the parking lot of St. Joseph's Hospital. The girl suffered bruises to her face. Police say he was drunk at the time.

WABI-TV (http://bit.ly/11D65S8 ) reports that Peavey's lawyer thought the sentence was appropriate. Peavey apologized in court and said he hopes to get the help he needs.
