(AP) — CLEVELAND - A Cleveland man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for putting his young daughter in a clothes dryer and turning it on to teach her not to go inside the machine.
Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Common Pleas Judge Joan Synenberg (SIHN'-ehn-burg) sentenced 36-year-old Steve McClairn on Thursday on his guilty plea to child endangering, abduction and domestic violence.
McClairn told the judge he put the 7-year-old girl into the dryer Dec. 19 not as punishment, but to teach her never to climb into the machine.
The judge says the sentence reflects the father's criminal record, including burglary, theft, attempted kidnapping and drug trafficking.
