Patterson Sentenced
(2008-09-08)
(WOUB) - A Zanesville man has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for the death of his daughter.

Eric Scott Patterson entered a guilty plea to one count of involuntary manslaughter in August.

Patterson already spent nearly seven years in prison after being found guilty of the charge in June 1997, but his conviction was thrown out because of an error in jury instructions.

The Muskingum County Prosecutor's Office recommended Patterson be given credit for time already served.
