CLOVIS, N.M. - A habitual offender will spend up to 18 years behind bars.
Ninth Judicial District Attorney Andrea Reeb says 32-year-old Aaron Clark was convicted of child abuse, possession of a controlled substance, and tampering with evidence.
Police documents show Clark attempted to hide a baggie of meth underneath his sleeping infant as officers moved in to arrest him.
During sentencing, Judge Van Soelen told Clark that the hardships his family would face while he was incarcerated was the direct result of his actions and was "no one's fault but his own."
Clark was sentenced to the maximum of 18 years with six years suspended for supervised probation. His sentence was enhanced due to him having two prior felony convictions.
