Dad accused of taping up daughter: 'I regret it'

Friday, March 02, 2012

The Chicago father accused of putting electrical tape on his young daughter's wrists and face and posting a photo on the Internet says he has regrets.

Andre Curry talked with ABC 7 at his church Friday. He has entered not guilty pleas to charges of aggravated domestic battery and unlawful restraint. His daughter was 22-months old at the time.

ABC 7 has blurred the photo of her posted on Facebook, which showed up on several websites, including SmokingGun.com.

Curry faced a barrage of criticism online.

"I regret it. Every day I'm mentally tormented by it. Every day, I think about it every day," Curry said.

Curry has only seen his daughter once since December. He is asking for supervised visits.
