CHICAGO (AP) -- A Chicago man accused of binding his 22-month-old daughter with tape and posting a picture on Facebook with a caption that read, "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back" has been convicted of battery charges.

Judge Lawrence Flood yesterday found 22-year-old Andre Curry guilty of aggravated domestic battery and aggravated battery. Curry is slated to be sentenced Nov. 29, and he's eligible for a sentence ranging from probation to 7 years in prison.

After a bench trial last month, Flood cleared Curry of an unlawful restraint charge.

In issuing his ruling yesterday, the judge criticized Curry for obstructing his child's breathing for his own enjoyment.

Curry's attorneys have called his actions a stupid prank and say he didn't hurt the child.
