GRAND HAVEN, MI (WHTC) - At least 15 years in prison awaits Ryan Kupres after sentencing today by Ottawa County Circuit Court Judge Jon Hulsing. The 28-year-old Zeeland man was convicted last month of first-degree child abuse involving his then-five-month-old daughter, who suffered injuries when she was shaken violently at the Jenison home of his mother just over a year ago. The sentence had exceeded state sentencing guidelines of up to 14 years, as Hulsing noted a previous no-contest plea by Kupres involving a three-week-old son in 2008.
