The father who pleaded guilty to criminal negligence in the death of his three-year old daughter from Greece was sentenced on Wednesday.
Michael Stagles took a plea deal in the case. He will serve 1 1/3 to 4 years in state prison.
His daughter, Brook Stagles, died last year from blunt force trauma to her stomach. Stagles' girlfriend, Erica Bell, was found guilty of murder and manslaughter and is serving 25 years-to-life in prison.
After serving 1 1/3 year, Stagles will be up for parole to determine if he will serve the full four years. In court the judge recommended that Stagles serve the full four years.
