A Dawsonville man was sentenced earlier this month to serve 120 years after being found guilty of inflicting multiple serious injuries on an 18-month-old child. Mitchell Dewayne Samples, 29, pled guilty Sept. 8 to nine counts of cruelty to children in the first degree, according to District Attorney Lee Darragh. Samples pled guilty to breaking the child’s arm and leg, burning the child’s hands and foot and causing other serious injuries, as well as failing to obtain medical treatment for the child.
