A Florida Panhandle man whose baby was badly burned in a meth lab explosion has been found guilty of child abuse and other charges.

A Bay County jury also found 44-year-old John Osborn guilty
Thursday, Dec. 2 of manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of a listed chemical.

A judge later sentenced him to 30 years in prison on the child
abuse charge and 30 years on the manufacturing meth charge, to run

Authorities arrested Osborn and the baby's mother, Tessa Wagy,
in August 2009 after their home exploded while Osborn was trying to
cook meth. Their 1-year-old daughter suffered burns to 65 percent
of her body.

Wagy was sentenced last month to serve 30 years for a
methamphetamine charge and 20 years for child abuse. The sentences
will also run consecutively.

    That is what prisons were built for in my opinion. Not providing a retirement home for the likes of Gary Michael Hilton. Good job Judicial System.
