JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A Jefferson County father received a year of probation after pleading no contest to charges of assault and child endangerment.

Gregory Byrd was sentenced after his daughter told investigators that he pulled her around the house by her hair and forced her to sleep in a dog crate to stop her from sneaking out of the house.

Byrd's lawyer says he never meant to hurt his daughter.
