GOLD HILL, Ore. (AP) – A man has been sentenced for using a dog shock collar on a girl he was babysitting at a home outside Medford.
The Mail Tribune reports 40-year-old Mark McSorley pleaded guilty in November to charges of assault and tampering with a witness.
He was sentenced to three years probation and 30 days in jail.
He is also barred from being a child care provider.
His wife, Christina McSorley, entered not guilty pleas Wednesday to assault and harassment charges related to the same incident.
A probable cause affidavit says the McSorleys while caring for three children on Oct. 22 put a dog shock collar on a child’s forearm and repeatedly shocked the child.
