Remember when Adrian Peterson’s son was murdered by his baby mama’s degenerate boyfriend? Well today, a South Dakota judge has sentenced Joseph Patterson to life in priosn without the possibility of parole for his role in the death of two-year-old Tyrese Ruffin, son of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson.
Back in September, Patterson was convicted of second-degree murder, first degree manslaughter and aggravated battery.
Tyrese Robert Ruffin, died in October 2013 after he suffered four blows to the head that doctors said could not have been accidental. Patterson at the time was dating Ruffin’s mother Ashley Doohen. He was alone with the child at the time of his death and claimed that Ruffin choked on a fruit snack and that he was simply giving him CPR.
Adrian Peterson had only learned of his son’s existence a few months before his death and was in the process of arranging to meet him when he heard of his hospitalization. Peterson rushed to his side and met Tyrese for the first time the day before he died.
