Man Pleads Guilty to Slapping Baby During Flight

ATLANTA, GA (CNN) -- The man accused of slapping a crying toddler on a plane earlier this year has pleaded guilty to assault in federal court.

Hundley's attorney has said Hundley was in distress and grieving during the flight, after learning the day before that his son was in a coma.

He was headed to Atlanta to decide whether or not to take his son off life support. Hundley, who's also accused of using a racial slur in the incident, will be sentenced in January.

Joe Rickey Hundley is facing six months in prison. The agreement also requires Hundley to enter a drug or alcohol treatment program and attend anger management classes.
