    Andre Curry could face up to 7 years in prison.

    A man charged with tying up his daughter and posting her picture on Facebook was found guilty of battery charges on Thursday.

    Andre Curry taped his then-22-month-old daughter's mouth shut and bound her hands together before posting the picture on the social media network last year. He claimed the incident was meant to be a joke.

    Last week, Curry was cleared of unlawful restraint charges in the case, but the judge ruled in favor of prosecutors Thursday because they were able to prove that obstructing the girl's nose amounts to domestic battery, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

    He will be sentenced on November 29.
