A Carthage man takes a plea bargain for endangering the welfare of a child.

48 year old Keith Gilbert was sentenced to seven years in prison for interfering with the feeding of his son Dustin Gilbert. The baby had failed to gain weight for a few months, a condition which ended as soon as he was given to the care of a Kansas City hospital.

Gilbert had been on probation for an unrelated child endangerment case from 2012.
