Quentin Lewis agrees to new plea deal for shaking baby to death

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - A 20-year prison term lasted just eight years for a central Wisconsin man who reached a new plea deal in the death of his daughter from shaken baby syndrome.

Quentin Lewis of Athens pleaded no contest Thursday to a reduced charge of second-degree reckless homicide. The plea deal eliminated a five-week trial in Marathon County. He was also given credit for jail time he served before his conviction.

It means that Lewis -- who's now 32 -- is starting ten years under extended supervision. He was originally convicted of first-degree reckless homicide in the March 2005 death of his four-month-old daughter Madelyn.

Lewis was granted a new trial back in 2009, based on an appellate court ruling at the time which said that babies might not be able to die just by being shaken.
