A man convicted in a shaken-baby case has been sentenced to 60 days time-served for contacting the baby's mother.

Colin Matchim, 26, was found guilty in May of aggravated assault for shaking his infant daughter.

When he was first charged, he was granted bail. A condition of the bail was to have no contact with the baby's mother, Kate Coombs.

The court was told Wednesday that Matchim contacted Coombs by phone and email. He pleaded guilty to the no-contact charges in October.

Matchim has been in custody since his conviction in May on the assault charge. He has yet to be sentenced for that conviction.

His lawyers are attempting to have new evidence entered and have the trial re-opened.
