A 33-year-old Red Lake, Minn., man was sentenced in federal court in St. Paul for endangering the health of a baby, according to the FBI.

U.S. District Judge Donovan W. Frank sentenced Chad Joseph Sumner to 40 months in prison on one count of child endangerment, according to an FBI new release. Sumner was indicted on Jan. 8 and pleaded guilty on April 12.

In his plea agreement, Sumner admitted that on Aug. 17, 2011, while acting as the caretaker for the baby when the mother was away, the child was injured. As a result of Sumner's failure to properly care for the child, the infant suffered substantial physical harm, including head trauma and skull fractures.

This case was the result of an investigation by the Red Lake Tribal Police Department and the FBI.
