A Hannibal man is sentenced Friday after being convicted of child abuse charges in August.

Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton announced that Dustin Dye will serve 15 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections, the maximum allowed by law.

Dye was charged with child abuse in the case of Baby Nora, who suffered injuries and was taken to a St. Louis hospital for treatment.

Clayton also announced that Dye’s 15 year sentence will be served consecutively with a ten year sentence already in place in a felony drug case.
