Smith to Prison for Injuring Infant With Wart Remover

A Madison man has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for burning the mouth, throat and stomach of his former girlfriend's baby with liquid wart remover.

Aaron l. Smith pleaded no contest to a felony charge of first-degree reckless injury in February for the incident with the 5-month-old infant.

The 28-year-old Smith claimed he was drinking at the time of the February 2006 incident and that he accidentally spilled the wart remover into the infant's mouth.

Do you think the 2 1/2 year prison sentence for Aaron Smith is appropriate?
