Joshua Morris Age
Joshua Morris, 29, shook the little girl while he took care of her when her mother walked into a store.
A court heard that the mother found her daughter “limp and still” on her return.
The girl – who cannot be named – is now three years old and will be affected by her injuries for the rest of her life and may never live independently.
Prosecutors said Morris lost control of the baby because he was “tired” of smoking cannabis until 5 a.m. the night before.
Morris, of Old Colwyn, North Wales, denied serious injuries and said he found the baby “lifeless in bed”.
But he was found guilty in the Mold Crown Court and sentenced to three and a half years in prison.
Judge Rhys Rowlands said to him, “You are being convicted of overwhelming evidence of causing very serious injuries to an innocent child.
“You did it with a momentary loss of temper that had terrible, terrible consequences for this child – alas, with whom they will have to live for the rest of their lives.
Judge Rowlands added, “It has been a short-lived but explosive loss of anger on your part.
“I see no sign of regret on your part or of concern for the child whose life is so badly affected.
Chief Detective Inspector Sion Williams, who led the investigation, said, “Unfortunately, and frankly, no punishment can ever make up for the brain injury that changed this little character’s life during this horrific incident.”
DCI Williams added, “What appeared to be a temporary act of violence has devastated the future of this young child and will now need professional care for life.
“Fortunately, this little one now lives in a loving and caring family environment, which is supported by a number of committed and passionate professionals.
