Griswold Man Gets 12 Years For Abusing Sons

NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) – A Jewett City man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for severely injuring his twin 4-month-old sons.

Christopher Caruso was also sentenced on Monday to have no contact with his ex-wife and children until 2036 after pleading no contest to two counts of first-degree assault.

Police arrested the 39-year-old Caruso in February 2009. One son was flown to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford for unexplained seizures and respiratory problems. A medical evaluation determined he suffered previous injuries, including a brain and eye injury.

An examination of the other boy revealed injuries that included three healing rib fractures and a leg fracture.

The Norwich Bulletin reports that Caruso said he never meant to hurt the children but got rough with them when he was frustrated.

    This ape gets 12 yrs and the 2 kids get lifetime sentences. Good old justice. Maybe if the guy had a couple of joints on him he would have gotten more time.
