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.
