He then took the child and left the scene before being taken into custody the next morning.
“This type of violence, especially against women and children, simply will not be tolerated,” said Assistant District Attorney David Williamson, one of the prosecutors on the case.
During Thursday’s sentencing hearing, Davis angrily shouted at the woman as deputies took him from the courtroom, the DA’s office said.
The former girlfriend said her son still has nightmares about the attack.
Davis was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, cruelty to children in the first degree and other charges. After he is released from prison, he will be on probation for 10 years, according to the terms of the sentence.
