Child Abuse Sentencing in Harrison County

A Biloxi man sentenced after pleading guilty to felony child abuse just moments before his trial was set to begin in the Harrison County Courthouse.
Kenneth Preston was arrested in August 2014 after a 16-month-old child was brought to the emergency room for second and third degree burns on the buttocks, genitals and legs.
Officials say Preston immersed the child in a tub of hot water and held the 16-month-old down.
Today, Preston was sentenced to a total of 20 years in prison.
