(CHICAGO) –- A Chicago man, Andre Curry, has been charged with aggravated domestic battery for posting a Facebook photo of his little girl bound with tape.
“Curry used painters tape to bind his 1-year-old daughter’s wrists, ankles and mouth, and placed a photograph on Facebook,” according to the Chicago Police Department.
