A Royalton man faced his sentencing Thursday in the Niagara County courthouse.  

According to the Niagara Gazette, Dillon Hossbach has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for the death of his six-month-old son William. Hossbach, 25, pleaded guilty to a first-degree manslaughter charge back in late May.

Along with the 15-year sentence, the judge decided to sentence Hossbach to five years post-release supervision and asked that he refrain from contacting William's mother for 23 years.
