Two Kanawha County men accused of breaking the leg of a 2-year-old girl pleaded guilty to battery in Kanawha Circuit Court Monday, but they did not admit they were responsible for her injuries.
Andrew Young and James Miller now face up to two years in jail for sticking a shop vacuum on the face of the 2-year-old and a 3-year-old child in 2010 in South Charleston. They recorded that on a cell phone.
Prosecutors said child abuse charges that stemmed from the two allegedly breaking the girl's leg while practicing pro- wrestling moves would have been difficult to prove because the child's mother initially lied about the incident. Young and Miller will be sentenced in October. The plea bargain allows them to avoid the risk of going to prison on felony charges.
