CHICAGO (AP) ' A judge in Chicago has set bond at $100,000 for a man who bound his young daughter's hands, legs and mouth with duct tape and posted a photograph of her on Facebook.
Assistant State's Attorney Erin Antonietti says 21-year-old Andre Curry was playing with his 22-month-old daughter on Dec. 13 as the girl played with duct tape.
Antonietti says Curry took the tape from the child, bound her, then used his cellphone to take a picture that he posted with the words: "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back."
Assistant Public Defender Anand Sundaram said he believes Curry was playing around and wasn't trying to hurt the girl.
Curry is charged with aggravated domestic battery. He can't have contact with his daughter or use the Internet.
