Aumsville Man Gets Lengthy Prison Term for Assaulting 6-Month-Old BoySalem-News.com Staff
Doctors did not expect Fast to survive, but he did, and the boy has permanent brain damage family members said.
(SALEM, Ore. ) - A former Oregon Army National Guard Soldier from Aumsville will spend nearly nine years in prison for assaulting his ex-girlfriends 6-month-old son.
Robert Pinsky was convicted of first-degree assault in a Marion County Courtroom and Judge Vance Day sentenced Pinksy to 105 months in prison, and he is not able to receive any time off of his Measure 11 sentence.
In April 2013, Pinsky brought Roy Fast Jr., who was unconscious, to the Stayton Hospital emergency room and said the boy had fallen off a couch in the apartment he shared with Fast's mom, Shaanon Crouch.
However, doctors said the boy's injuries, including a skull fracture and broken leg, did not match up with the story Pinksy told, and called police.
Doctors did not expect Fast to survive, but he did, and the boy has permanent brain damage family members told Fox-12.
Fox-12 in Portland reported that Pinsky's attorney pointed out his client has no criminal history and drugs and alcohol were not involved in the assault. He said Pinsky, a National Guard soldier, has been receiving treatment for PTSD symptoms since 2008, although the VA has not diagnosed him.
