CANTON —

Whatever his reasoning, Lee M. Deitrick thought it wise to tattoo a toddler's bottom.

It wasn't even his child.

Now the 20-year-old Louisville man has learned his punishment. He was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison.

Deitrick pleaded guilty in Stark County Common Pleas Court to two felony child endangering charges as part of a plea deal with county prosecutors.

Deitrick tattooed the outline of the letter "A" on the child's buttock. The mark covers about one-half inch.

The mother — a friend of Deitrick's — left her then-19-month-old at Deitrick's W. Main Street home for a few hours on Nov. 7 while she visited a friend in the hospital, said Katie Chawla, assistant Stark County prosecutor.

One of the child's relatives, 17-year-old Brandi Nelson, held the girl across her lap, Chawla said.

"I don't know whose idea it was. It was late in the evening and apparently somebody thought it was a good idea," Chawla said.

County prosecutors maintain the tattooing caused the girl serious, permanent disfigurement and involved sharp and or prolonged pain. Deitrick had the tattoo equipment and has given tattoos to others, Chawla said.

Deitrick declined when asked by Judge Lee Sinclair if he wished to say anything during his court hearing.

Defense attorney Eugene O'Byrne told the judge that Deitrick wanted to take responsibility and move on.

Deitrick watched the child — whose name begins with "A" — often, O'Byrne said.

"There was no malice," he said. "More of an error in judgment."

Nelson, in March, had pleaded true — the juvenile equivalent of guilty — to a felony child endangering charge in Stark County Family Court and is awaiting sentencing in June, court officials said.

Deitrick had faced up to eight years in prison on one charge and five on the other had he been given the maximum term.

His 3-year term will start after he completes his current prison sentence for previous, unrelated convictions. He had been released early for felony domestic violence and misdemeanor violating a protection order convictions. That 18-month prison term was reimposed in February.

I don't know what to make of it. Is the penalty it excessive? Is it not excessive? Its such a weird crime that I don't know how they could come up with a proper and adequate sentence. :P

Well it's basically child abuse, but his judgement might have been impaired by alcohol or something. Had it not, slap on a child abuse charge. Only an idiot who wasn't drunk/high would tattoo a baby.

I would also considered that to be assault.

Not at all, but had his judgement been impaired, the action taken by court could be less drastic, seeing as though his normal judgement and character might have not landed him in all of this. Also, I doubt anyone would actually tattoo a baby had it not been such. It's not like it never happened, but he mightn't have know that he was actually doing it. This is just my opinion. Also, it would help to know if he took Ambien. People do ****ed-up **** when on that stuff.

A year would seem about right to me... -only put it on the butt and only a half inch in size -we do worse thiings to babies as far as pain -will make for a good life story later on If it had been on the face or someplace visible I would feel different about it -but he is going to lose 3 years of his life

only 3 years? if you're stupid enough to tattoo a baby, at home nonetheless, you're stupid enough to use unclean tools. He could have given that child a whole host of diseases from whoever he used the tattoo gun on before her.

Ehh the same happened in my city about 2 years ago. I guess with parents like that they are just preparing their kids for when they go to prison to look tougher.

When I was less than a year old, my mom left me with her boyfriend while she went out for groceries. While she was gone, he decided he wanted to tattoo a spider web on my hand. My mom walked in as he was starting. I have one little dot of ink on my wrist where you can see that he'd started.

It's actually cIassified as child endangerment if not outright abuse. Not such a minor act.:|

Shouldn't this also be child endangerment on the part of the mother? I mean, after all - she did leave the child where this happened.

I have seen a lot worse get a lot less (if nothing at all) when it comes to kids
-go work in a low income school and see what happens in the real world to kids

I am not saying what he did what right, but everything is relative...
For example, stat. rape involving a 19 year old and 16 year old vs a 30 year old with a 14 year old...they both stat. rape, but not the same thing in my book.
-so not all child abuse cases are the same even if they fall under the same cla$$ification

No. He babysat her child and had not done anything of the sort before. You can't go after parents if the babysitter suddenly displays a lack of sense.

They are the same. One adult...one minor. Both against the law. I see no difference....

This guy decides to semi-permanently scar the baby with a tattoo... Its just an incredibly stupid thing to do, and such incredibly stupid people shouldn't be allowed to roam shopping malls taking random children and disfiguring them. You can probably sense my opinion on tattoos.

Oh, well yes, you're right - I didn't realize she'd left the child with that particular babysitter in the past.

-go work in a low income school and see what happens in the real world to kids

I am not saying what he did what right, but everything is relative...
For example, stat. rape involving a 19 year old and 16 year old vs a 30 year old with a 14 year old...they both stat. rape, but not the same thing in my book.
-so not all child abuse cases are the same even if they fall under the same cla$$ification

They are the same. One adult...one minor. Both against the law. I see no difference....

I do not see things as so Black and White.
-but if that is how we differ, it is no wonder we feel differently about that tattoo

Tattoos are painful. Take the tattoo out and say it was a male continually puncturing a baby with a needle. Seem so harmless? As for your example.....age is not the sole deterrent as to who is harmed in a case like that.
