ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man is sentenced for beating his teenage son.

Wade Andrew Gordon, 36 of Rochester, was arrested in July after police say he sent his 14-year-old son to the hospital. Investigators say that after Gordon returned home intoxicated, he punched and kneed his son before pushing into a window.

The 14-year-old had to be taken to St. Marys Hospital by ambulance.

Gordon pleaded guilty Thursday to domestic assault. A charge of malicious punishment of a child was dismissed. He’s been given three years of supervised probation.
