San Felipe man gets 3 years for abuse

........................................................................................................................................................................................

A San Felipe Pueblo man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for child abuse.

Prosecutors say 33-year-old Robert Chavarillo also was sentenced Monday to one year of supervised release.

Chavarillo and his girlfriend were indicted in May 2012 after a San Felipe Pueblo social worker contacted federal authorities to make a child abuse referral.

Authorities say Chavarillo allegedly burned the child in the groin area in December 2011 because the child had wet the bed.

He pleaded guilty last December to a child abuse charge.

It isn’t immediately clear if Chavarillo is the biological father of the child.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Janaca Yatsattie was sentenced to three years of probation for failing to report the abuse to authorities.
