His sentence was 2-15 years, so he could be free in as little as 1 year. I noticed the article didn't mention which judge. I wonder if it's the same judge who let a repeat offender child molester go free.

So who decides how long he sits in jail? The judge can say 2-15, but he will get out way too soon for what he did. This child will never know a "normal life", due to one very bad decision that probably lasted all of 15-30 seconds. These judges really do just "slap hands" for terrible behaviors, as in the teen who was a repeat child molester.

Yeah! But he (loser sperm donor) and is son will have to live with the consequences for the rest of their lives. Just a sad sad story. That poor baby will never have the life he deserves.

Michigan has Truth in Sentencing, which means he will see the Parole Bd. only right before the 2 yrs. and NO ONE gets out of prison the first time they see the Parole Board.

I'd read it earlier, and yes, it is the same judge.
