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.

Curry’s lawyer had argued the father was merely having fun with the child and that she wasn’t in danger. But the judge disagreed and criticized Curry for obstructing his child’s breathing for his own enjoyment.
