CHICAGO – A Chicago man accused of binding his 22-month-old daughter with tape and posting a picture on Facebook has been sentenced to 18 months of probation.

A Cook County judge on Friday also ordered 22-year-old Andre Curry to attend parenting classes and submit to periodic drug testing.

Curry posted the picture with a caption that read, “This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back.”

He was convicted in November of aggravated domestic battery and aggravated battery. He’d faced up to seven years in prison but received probation because he has no prior criminal record.
