GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan man who tied a rope around his young daughter and let her stand on a bridge pillar over a flood-swollen river has been sentenced to 15 days in jail.

Hans Jansma learned his fate Tuesday in Grand Rapids District Court. A jury in November found the 32-year-old guilty of fourth-degree child abuse.

Jansma on April 22 allowed the girl to crawl out in an opening on the Blue Bridge over the Grand River, secured by a rope.
