We all know how easy it is to get caught up in a video game, but sometimes it would be better to just turn the game off.
31-year old James Dearman has pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter of a child. The child was his very own son, Jimmy.
Dearman faces up to 20 years in prison and has a hearing on July 28th.
According to a sheriff’s report, Dearman used his weight to pin the boy to the couch where he was playing video games. He was playing with his girlfriend, 22-year-old Ashley Cole.
The couple eventually realized the boy wasn’t breathing and called 911.
His girlfriend Cole has also pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter of a child.
