Judge Amber Gustafson ruled that Foltz is eligible to spend the remaining 10 months under supervised release.

At one point during the procedure, Foltz testified that he targeted his daughter because he was too young to alert anyone to the abuse.

According to The Duluth News Tribune, the abuse occurred between April 10 and May 30.

When the baby was taken to the emergency room on May 30, doctors from the emergency room of Essentia Health. I found the girl with bruises on both eyes, red marks on her back and a bruise on her shoulder.

At that time, Bailer told the doctors that the girl and her three-year-old brother had been left in their father's care that night.

Foltz had told the mother that the girl's injuries had been caused when her brother hit her with a toy gun. Foltz said he mainly blamed his son's shoulder because he was afraid his wife would abandon him if he discovered the truth.

The father admitted to the police during the interrogation that he caused the injuries by snapping the girl in the face with a towel and used a wooden spoon and a piece of vinyl floor to hit her on her butt.

He also said that he was frustrated with the crying baby. Later he admitted that while at work, he would think of new methods to torture his helpless daughter.

"There is no sentence that can undo the damage inflicted on your daughter," Judge Gustafson told Bailer during the hearing.

In addition to prison time, Foltz is required to pay more than $ 6000 in restitution.
