    The man who pleaded guilty to throwing a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in April received a sentence of 228 months (19 years) Monday morning.

During a hearing, Aranda said he knew throwing the child over the balcony could kill him. Aranda agreed to a plea deal in the case roughly three weeks ago. Through statements read in court, the family of 5-year-old Landen, who is still recovering, had a chance to address Aranda prior...
