Tuesday, January 4, 2022 (Phoenix, AZ) – Yesterday, a judge sentenced Baudel Alejandro Bermudez, DOB 11/1984, to 34 years in prison for two counts of Child Abuse, a Class 2 Dangerous Crimes Against a Child. Bermudez was sentenced to 17 years for each count and the sentences are to be served consecutively.
Bermudez was found guilty by a jury on October 26, 2021 for the brutal beating of a nine-week old baby in 2015.
“Law enforcement and prosecutors in this office have fought for more than five years to provide justice for a helpless baby who will never have the opportunity to live a normal life due to the head injuries she sustained at the hands of someone who was responsible for her care,” stated County Attorney Allister Adel. “The work we do in this office can take time and the justice system may not always move as quickly as we like, but the diligence and commitment to fighting for victims in this community will not be deterred. I applaud their hard work and thank them for their efforts.”
