      MADISON, Neb. (AP) - A new father who shook and injured his 2-week-old daughter has been sentenced to the six months he has already served in jail.

      Justin Gore, 22, was sentenced Thursday to time served. He also was ordered to take anger management and parenting classes.

      The baby was taken to a hospital for vomiting and diarrhea in September. A doctor called police to report bruising and cranial bleeding consistent with an infant being shaken or struck.

      Gore told the detective he had been up for long hours and she shook the baby when she wouldn't stop crying.

      A lawyer for Gore says there appears to be no lasting injuries to the girl from the shaking.
