REDWOOD CITY (AP) — A Daly City man convicted of child endangerment after authorities say he put his 17-month-old son in a hot oven to teach him a lesson will spend about two more months behind bars.

A judge sentenced 21-year-old Gregory Colver Jr. on Friday to a year in jail, but gave him credit for time served. Colver was also placed on probation for five years and cannot see his son without another adult being present.

San Mateo County prosecutors say Colver wanted to teach his son about the dangers of a hot oven on Dec. 28 after the boy began banging his head against the oven door while it was heating up.

According to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, the boy squirmed and fell on the hot coils after Colver placed him feet first into the oven. He suffered second and third-degree burns.
