Dad blinded own infant son

Nicholas McRoberts admits he has an anger issue.

It cost his six-week-old son his sight and possibly his future.

McRoberts, 27, was sent to prison Tuesday for eight years -- the maximum allowed -- after earlier admitting he beat and shook six-week-old Devin McRoberts so violently that the child now is blind and likely never will see.

The father initially blamed his infant’s injuries on his two-year-old son, a child McRoberts also was accused of beating.

A disgusted Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman chewed McRoberts out -- and wondered why state law makers can’t make punishments more severe for those who brutally beat infants.

“You destroyed your son’s life and he’s ruined. He’s blind,” Ruehlman told Nicholas McRoberts.


“(He) won’t be able to function or hardly walk. Six weeks old, beat this kid, page after page of (his) injuries. Broken ribs, Broken skull. Six-week-old little baby. Damaged brain and you only get eight years.”

McRoberts was watching his six-week-old son June 10 at their Reading apartment when McRoberts beat and shook the child, then waited 2½ hours before calling 911 for help.

“There’s no way he will ever get his sight back,” the judge said of the victim.

“His language and adaptive skills are going to be delayed. (The father) essentially just blinded his little baby.”

That child was represented in court Tuesday by Mary Ann Ford, a guardian ad litem, an attorney assigned to look out for the infant’s legal well-being. She’s also the lawyer for McRoberts’ two-year-old child, the one the father blamed for hurting the infant before later pleading guilty.

Ford said McRoberts’ children were taken away but eventually returned by the Department of Job & Family Services.

“You hate to hear little kids cry,” the judge told McRoberts, quoting from a psychiatric report on McRoberts. “It makes you mad.”

“I will admit that I do have a bad temper,” McRoberts responded.

Ruehlman made a dire prediction he hopes doesn’t come true.

“You will probably have more kids and probably beat those kids, too,” the judge told him.

“He should never be able to have any more kids.”

This low life. There is a picture of him on the above link. Maybe they will take care of him in prison. Eight years is the maximum sentence. 🇳🇴

You're right PFF, he is a low life POS. The judge is right, he will get out and have more children! In this case either the laws need to be rewritten so that the maximum penalty fits the crime or this POS should have been charged with other charges.

lol Raine, I knew you would say it. I typed it at first and then backed it out. But he is a low life POS. There, I feel better now saying it.
