Father Sentenced To 6-8 Years In Prison For Critically Injuring 2-Month-Old Son

A father accused of critically injuring his 2-month-old baby in January will spend the next 6 to 8 years in prison. Jason Edward Thompson, 22, of Clayton was arrested days after taking his infant son to the emergency department at WakeMed with life-threatening injuries. The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office has never released specific details on how the child was injured. Thompson entered an Alford plea to the charge of felony child abuse causing serious injury. Prosecutors agreed not to press additional charges against Thompson if the child ever dies.
