A Binghamton man who admitted placing a baby in scalding hot water, causing serious injuries, will not have his sentence reduced.25 year old Christopher Chisholm's appeal, claiming his four year prison sentence and three year post-release supervision was excessive, has been thrown out in Broome County Court.

In May, 2011 Chisholm pleaded guilty to assault, admitting he deliberately put the one year old boy into the hot water three months earlier while the child's mother was at work, causing first, second and third degree burns.
