An American resident of Colorado who tried to kill infant son in an accident, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. This writes The Denver Post.

31-year-old Nathan Weitzel (Nathan Weitzel) in February was convicted of attempted first-degree murder (as the USA is called a pre-planned premeditated murder). “This is a very serious crime, an innocent child was hurt and very easily could have died,” said the judge.

Man staged the accident in August 2016. In his car he accelerated to 120 kilometers per hour and crashed into standing at the Parking machine. Weitzel before it buckled, but the straps on the seat of his son, who was two-and-a-half years, to fix did not. As a result, the boy broke his leg, got concussion and a cut forehead. He had to put 20 stitches, writes the New York Post.

The father told investigators that he had consumed cocaine. He also explained that to deal with the son decided due to too much responsibility, and he did not consider himself a real man and therefore could not raise a child. It was also reported that the murder Weitzel decided, watching his son playing in the Park.
