A Hartford man received a life prison sentence Wednesday for severely burning a 7-month-old boy in hot water.

Circuit Court Judge Kevin Moulton issued the sentence for 32-year-old Jamie Abrams. A jury convicted Abrams last month of a felony aggravated child abuse charge.

“This has not been easy case for anyone involved, and although you have shown remorse you do have two priors,” Moulton said. “The facts of the case are bad facts. The things that happened to this child can never be corrected by enough sorries.”

The Dothan Police Department would like to thank our local community and media for assistance in identifying a man wanted for indecent exposure. On Sunday, July 19, 2011 the victim, a twelve year old female, was shopping with a guardian at Target. She and another juvenile went to the grocery side of the store where they briefly separated while looking for snacks. The victim stated a white male suddenly appeared at the end of the aisle where she was walking and had his shorts pulled down and shirt raised up exposing his genitals. Employees of Target provided a photograph of the suspect and his vehicle in hopes of identifying the man. Police received numerous phone calls and have now identified and arrested William Daniel McCord.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) yesterday arrested Michael Patrick Oliver, 59, of Bruce, Fla., on methamphetamine drug charges.
