MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot father has been sentenced to time already served and probation for leaving his young daughter alone in a car behind his apartment building last April while he was intoxicated.

Thirty-six-year-old Craig Cadotte pleaded guilty to felony child neglect. The Minot Daily News says Judge Todd Cresap gave Cadotte a suspended one year sentence, except for the seven days he’s already served in jail. Cadotte will also be on probation for two years. If he successfully completes probation the charge will appear as a misdemeanor on his record.

Officers investigating a fight between a heavily intoxicated Cadotte and two other men discovered the girl, born in 2013, alone and crying in the back seat of Cadotte’s vehicle.
