Joe Hundley, Idaho Man Who Slapped Toddler on Plane Sentenced to 8 Months in Prison


Snake on a Plane …

Joe Hundley, the Idaho man who plead guilty to slapping a crying toddler aboard a Delta flight last February, has been sentenced to 8 months in federal prison. Hundley also used a racial slur toward the mother of the 19 month old boy when he began to cry saying, “shut that ni**er baby up.” Hundley’s lawyer claimed that Hundley was under distress while heading to Atlanta to decide whether or not to take his son, who was in a coma due to an insulin overdose, off of life support. Hundley’s son died the day after the flight. However, even though Hundley took a plea deal and prosecutors recommended six months in prison, the judge imposed a higher sentence in part because of Hundley’s criminal history, which includes a prior assault.

Joe Hundley, an Idaho man who pleaded guilty to slapping a crying toddler on an Atlanta-bound flight, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison Monday.

Hundley pleaded guilty in October after reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors.

Prosecutors say Hundley also used a racial slur to refer to the 19-month-old boy, who’s black, and hit him under the eye as the flight from Minneapolis descended to the Atlanta airport last February.
