A Houston County man has been convicted of burning a 7-month-old child.
A jury found 31-year-old Jamie Alan Abrams guilty of child abuse.
Abrams told his attorney that he put the child in the tub for a bath and left to go answer the phone. The defense believed the child turned the faucet, but the prosecution says medical evidence shows the boy was likely burned by something other than hot water.
Abrams will be sentenced June 22nd.
