A father of two was left paralyzed, in a half skull coma after a vicious & # 39; one-punch & # 39; attack for which his attacker served only two months in prison.

Steven Augustine, 32, was attacked with what doctors think was a baseball bat while walking home from work in Ulster County, New York last May.

The left half of his skull was completely destroyed in the robbery and he suffers from sunken brain syndrome after much of his skull had to be removed.

His attacker, Charles Miles, was imprisoned for a crime and served 72 days of his year-long sentence in the county jail for what was considered a one-off attack.

Augustine & # 39; mother Donna, 57, told The sun: & # 39; Steven cries every time he sees his sons Michael, seven and Steven Junior, 11 – they also cry because they miss their father so much. & # 39;

& # 39; He is not responding. In short, he misses the entire left side of his brain, & his mother told ABC.

Holster Carnright, officer of the Ulster district, said that because Miles had not intended any serious bodily injury, his office could not charge him.

& # 39; The injuries to his face were consistent with a single punch & # 39 ;, Carnright told ABC.

& # 39; The skull fracture corresponded to a fall backwards. & # 39;

Donna does not believe that the injuries are consistent with a blow to the head and medical evidence shows that a medic wrote that he appeared to have been hit with a & # 39; baseball bat & # 39 ;.

Donna said to the broadcaster: & I just can't believe this happened, and these people can do something like that and get away with it. & # 39;

Augustine & # 39; mother Donna, 57, said: & # 39; He cries every time he sees his sons Michael, seven and Steven Junior, 11 - they also cry because they miss their father so much & # 39;

According to an GoFundMe page prepared for Augustine: & # 39; Steve also had several fractures in his face.

& # 39; Steve & # 39; s nose was broken and his lower lip almost tore off his face. & # 39;

Augustine now waits for the bone in his skull to be replaced with a plastic plate. Two attempts to put metal in place have led to infections.

He also suffers from epileptic seizures and has received medication to deal with it that damages his liver.

A government agency in New York has now intervened to pay for its operation.

His mother told The Sun: & The operation could save his life; it will compensate and protect the fluid around his brain – a slight jolt to the area can be life threatening because it only protects his skin.

& # 39; They will use a special plastic plate because the steel plates do not seem to agree with him; I pray it works. & # 39;
