The man who slapped a 19 month old toddler in the face last February aboard a Delta flight from Minneapolis (MSP) to Atlanta (ATL) has been sentenced to eight months in prison for the incident. The boy was slapped when he started crying as the plane descended. From the AJC:
The toddler’s mother, Jessica Bennett, told investigators Hundley told her to “to shut that (n-word) baby up” before he slapped the 19-month-old on the face. Bennett and her child were seated in the seat next to Hundley’s. Hundley was on his way to Atlanta to take his only child off life support after his son had overdosed on insulin, Hundley’s attorney, Marcia Shein, said in court filings. Shein said Hundley had been awake 24 hours straight prior to the altercation on the plane and that his son died days later.
