SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury man who used a lighter to burn a young boy will spend three years behind bars for child abuse, the Wicomico State's Attorney's Office has announced.

Michael McClymont, 26, appeared in Wicomico County Circuit Court on Tuesday where he tendered a guilty plea to second-degree child abuse. He was sentenced to seven years in prison, with all but three suspended. 

The incident involving McClymont occurred in Salisbury in November of last year, court records show.

Assistant State's Attorney Pam Correa said McClymont used a Bic lighter to burn the pre-teen victim in his back. McClymont claimed he was using the lighter to play a game with the boy but did not intend to injure him, according to Correa.

Following his release from prison, McClymont will be placed on two years supervised probation.
