Dad Faces Abuse Charges Over Facebook Post of Girl

Wednesday, 21 Dec 2011 09:31 AM

 

CHICAGO — A 21-year-old Chicago man faces abuse charges after he allegedly posted a photograph on Facebook that shows his daughter's hands, legs and mouth apparently bound with blue tape.

Andre Curry is charged with aggravated domestic battery, Police spokesman Officer Ron Gaines said.

Curry apparently posted the photograph on his Facebook page with the words, "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back."

The photograph has since been removed, but police didn't have any details about when it was removed.

Curry is to appear in domestic court Wednesday. It wasn't immediately clear whether he has an attorney.

Kendall Marlowe, spokesman for the Department of Children and Family Services, says the agency has never investigated Curry. He wouldn't say whether DCFS has interviewed the child or Curry.
