UPDATE: BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to up to 67 years in prison for beating and burning his girlfriend's 3-year-old son, then going to the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.

Twenty-eight-year-old Roland Dow and the boy's mother were arrested at the amusement park in November 2012, two weeks after leaving the boy at a hospital with a brain injury, head-to-toe bruises and burns on his arm and hand.

Dow was convicted in June of 11 charges alleging he assaulted the boy, failed to get medical help, coached him to lie and secretly recorded a social worker's visit.

Dow was sentenced Thursday to 25 1/2 to 67 years in prison. The boy's mother, Jessica Linscott, is serving 2 1/2 to 7 years in prison for child endangerment and witness tampering.
