A judge sentenced a Franklin man to seven years in prison Tuesday for his son's scalding death. Robert Ritchie, 32, asked for mercy, telling Judge Robert Peeler he wanted to become a pastor so he could share his faith. He faced a possible sentence of up to 11 years. Sheri Gredig, the victim's maternal grandmother, told Ritchie: "You're destined for hell and the devil himself." Defense attorney Frank Schiavone IV called Ritchie a "gentle giant" living with despair and hopelessness.
