ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - 29-year-old Joshua Johnson pleaded guilty Monday morning to neglect of a dependent.

His 21-year-old girlfriend, Tiffany Otten, was convicted last week of the same charge.

Emergency room doctors found their 7-month old son had two skull fractures and required immediate brain surgery.

The deal calls for Johnson to serve six years in prison.

He'll be sentenced September 15th and Otten will be sentenced on September 13th.
