A Salt Lake City father took a plea deal Friday, July 10, after facing accusations of shaking his baby to the point of fatal injuries, according to the ABC 4 News website. Everado Mendoza, 22, will serve up to 15 years in prison for shaking his then two-month-old girl in November 2007, resulting in her death. Although Mendoza did not admit that he was guilty of the accusation, he admitted that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of shaking his child. Following his prison sentence, he will be deported to Mexico.
