January 07, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

A man who was using the Internet while his 13-month-old son drowned in the bathtub was sentenced to a year in jail.

Tyler Bratsch, 25, of Willmar, pleaded guilty last month to manslaughter. He admitted visiting porn, sports and music sites and checking e-mail while his son, Logan, was in the tub.

Bratsch also must write a letter of apology to Logan every year for the next five years on the anniversary of his death.
