PHOENIX - A Chandler man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison in a child abuse case.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 31-year-old Steven Saldana was sentenced Wednesday to a 27-month term.
They say Saldana pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after being initially charged with three counts of child abuse.
Saldana and his girlfriend were arrested last August after a baby she was caring for was hospitalized with 14 broken bones, multiple bruises and abrasions plus a cigarette burn.
Chandler police say Saldana abused the 4-month-old girl several times while he was living with 25-year-old Angelica Jimenez.
Police say Jimenez was a friend of the baby's mother, who had lost custody.
Jimenez was sentenced in March to 10 years' probation after pleading guilty to child abuse and hindering prosecution.
