Monday, a federal judge today sentenced an Idaho man who pleaded guilty to slapping a crying toddler on an Atlanta-bound flight last February.

60-year-old Joe Rickey Hundley was sentenced to serve eight months in federal prison.

Hundley pleaded guilty in October to slapping the 19-month-old boy in the face during a Delta Air Lines flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta.

Hundley's attorney blamed the incident on his alcoholism.

The former aerospace executive apologized to the child's mother in court.
