28-year-old Jovan P. Primeaux was sentenced on Friday as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors
Primeaux previously pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault of a child younger than 3.

Authorities say doctors in Sioux Falls and Aberdeen found internal injuries to the child that were consistent with non-accidental head trauma.
