Minn. man pleads guilty in girl's 'diaper duty'

ANOKA, Minn. — A Fridley man has pleaded guilty to forcing his girlfriend's 12-year-old daughter to run outside in a diaper, with her head shaven, as punishment for a failing grade.

The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/VZmNNc) reports the 34-year-old man entered his plea Monday, the same day his trial was expected to start in Anoka County.

The man pleaded guilty to gross misdemeanor aiding and abetting malicious punishment and to a misdemeanor domestic assault case from 2010 for repeatedly hitting the girl in the legs with a belt.

He could receive up to two months in jail when he's sentenced next month.

Last week the girl's 38-year-old mother entered a special plea to gross misdemeanor malicious punishment of a child for the diaper incident. She could receive up to three months in jail.
