Mother: Girl's Father Isn't a Monster

A Chicago mother wants the public to know that a photo showing her daughter bound with duct tape was meant as a lighthearted joke and that the girl's father is not the monster many are calling him.

Sentencing was postponed for the man charged with tying up his daughter and posting her picture on Facebook.

Andre Curry's attorney on Thursday asked for a new trial. Curry was supposed to be sentenced for taping his then-22-month-old daughter's mouth shut and binding  her hands before posting the picture on the social media network last year. Curry claimed the incident was meant to be a joke.

Curry was cleared of unlawful restraint charges in the case but was found guilty of battery charges. The judge ruled in favor of prosecutors because they were able to prove that obstructing the girl's nose amounts to domestic battery.

Curry was convicted of two battery charges in the case and could face a maximum of seven years in prison, or a minimum sentence of probation.

The judge will rule on the request Dec. 31.
