Steuben Co. judge convicts man of assaulting 8-month-old baby
Bath, N.Y. (WHAM) - An Elmira man was convicted Friday morning for assaulting an 8-month-old child in November 2016.
Steuben County Court Judge Marianne Furfure returned a guilty verdict, convicting 29-year-old Steffan Miller of felony second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
On November 17, 2016, Miller was caring for the baby at a home in Bath. The child is not his own.
The child's mother came home and found the baby was injured, and had to be taken immediately to Arnot-Ogden Medical Center and then Strong Memorial Hospital.
Miller was arrested and charged. A bench trial ensued, during which the prosecution called 15 witnesses.
Miller is scheduled to be sentenced on December 19 at 2:30 p.m.
