A Fort Drum man faces two years in state prison after admitting Wednesday in Jefferson County Court that he severely injured his 2-month-old son.
Kristoffer L. Fultz, 31, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault. He admitted that on May 30 in the town of LeRay he caused injuries to the child that included a broken arm and broken ribs, as well as bleeding in the brain. State police said at the time that Mr. Fultz is not a soldier, but his wife, who was not involved in the incident, is in the military.
In addition to a prison term, he is expected to be ordered to undergo three additional years of supervision upon his release at sentencing April 9.

Pierre L. Buggs, 29, Brooklyn, pleaded guilty to third-degree attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance. He admitted that on Aug. 19, with others, he tried to sell heroin.
