A dramatic scene played out at the Gibson County Courthouse Wednesday, as a man was caught on camera punching a man who had just been sentenced for the death of his infant son.
Kwin Boes had just been sentenced to 25 years, 20 in prison and 5 years on probation after he is released.
We’re told the man who punched him was the baby’s uncle.
Sheriff Tim Bottoms tells us Jeremiah Hartley, who goes by Matt, is now facing a battery charge.
Boes was arrested in May of 2018 after his 11-week-old son, Parker, died of blunt force head trauma.
Kwin’s trial was canceled in June after a plea agreement was reached in the case.
The agreement dismissed two level 1 felony charges in exchange for pleading guilty to a level 2 felony charge of domestic battery resulting in death.
Before the agreement, he faced up to 40 years in prison.
