Sounds like UNNAMED DAD was one of those druggie deadbeats who was made into a "stay-at-home dad" while Mom supported his worthless @$$.

Tulsa dad accused of child neglect ordered to jail

February 28, 2013 12:17 CST

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A judge has revoked the suspended sentence of a Tulsa man charged with child neglect after police found his 22-month-old daughter locked in a metal dog cage -- an allegation that violated his parole terms for a prior drug charge.

Prosecutors asked the judge Thursday to revoke the man's 2-year suspended sentence after his arrest on child neglect charges.

The judge ordered the man serve 2 years in prison. The Associated Press is not naming the father to protect the child's identity.

The father was sentenced in August 2012 -- about three months before police found the girl locked in the crate and another child wandering around naked outside.

Court records allege the father admitted taking drugs and drinking beer the day the children were found.

He's pleaded not guilty.
