Father sentenced for crash that paralyzed daughter

CANTON, Ohio – A father was sentenced on Wednesday for his role in an automobile crash that paralyzed his daughter, Action News reported.

Arturo Deleon pleaded not guilty when he appeared in court over the summer, but a judge decided otherwise.

Deleon let his 3-year-old daughter sit in the front seat of the car while he drove under the influence of alcohol. They were involved in a crash, and little Carmen's neck was broken by the airbag.

A judge just sentenced Deleon to two years in prison.

Carmen's mother, Stacey Deleon, was in the backseat during the crash, and was uninjured.
