Man gets 7 years in toddler beating

Posted: Sunday, August 17, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A 24-year-old Anchorage man was sentenced to seven years in prison last week for severely beating a toddler.

Joshua Sagayo threw the 2-year-old child against a wall and repeatedly smashed his head on the floor because he would not stop crying.

Sagayo pleaded guilty to felony second-degree assault.

Assistant District Attorney Taylor Winston said the child nearly died from the attack last November, and will have physical difficulties perhaps his entire life.
