Man Gets 6 To 10 Years For Cuffing Boy With Dead Chicken

MONROE, N.C. (AP) – A North Carolina man has been sentenced to six to 10 years in prison after admitting he handcuffed an 11-year-old boy by his ankle to a porch with a dead chicken around his neck as punishment.

Dorian Harper was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and maiming without malice.

Harper told the judge in Monroe, southeast of Charlotte that he is sorry for his actions.

Prosecutors said they agreed to accept a guilty plea to spare the children in the home from having to testify at a trial.

Prosecutors said the children had endured enough, living in a filthy house with animals, being hungry and beaten.
