Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Eau Claire man accused of child abuse will spend three years on probation.
Judge Sarah Harless handed down that sentence for Jesse J. Smith. He was convicted of throwing a shoe so hard at his girlfriend’s son, that it left a mark in the shape of a shoe heel on the five-year-old boy’s stomach.
The child also said Smith spanked him, and grabbed his feet and rolled him off a bed, causing him to hit his head.
Smith was also ordered to get anger management counseling if his probation agent deems it necessary. He cannot have unsupervised contact with kids.
