A Georgia father was sentenced to 50 years in prison after being charged with attempted murder of his newborn baby. He confessed to putting anti-freeze in the baby's milk, though he later walked that back.

The baby survived the poisoning.

Curtis Jack, the baby's father, was convicted on charges of first-degree cruelty to children and criminal attempt to commit murder, police said.

According to the South Fulton Police Department, Jack had a child with a coworker with whom he had an intimate relationship in 2020. Jack pushed for the woman to get an abortion, however, she went through with the pregnancy.

The child's mother was hospitalized after giving birth to their daughter on September 24, 2020.

On Oct. 1, 2020, Jack picked up two bottles of breastmilk from the baby's mother and put antifreeze in the bottles. He delivered the contaminated milk to the baby's grandmother. The baby drank the bottles and fell critically ill within 24 hours, according to charging documents.

Police detectives said that Jack confessed to putting antifreeze in the bottles, saying that he did not want to pay child support, however, he has since recanted.

Authorities told WSB-TV they were confused by the motive because Jack had a nice paying job, the outlet reports.

South Fulton Police Sergeant Pserda Dickerson, who was the lead detective on the case, told WSB-TV that the case "hit home because it was an 18-day-old baby."

A jury found Jack guilty on all counts during the trial.
