A Rogers man was sentenced to 18 years in prison Wednesday for chaining his 5-year-old daughter to a dresser.

A Benton County circuit judge sentenced David Bridgeman after he pleaded guilty to false imprisonment, permitting abuse of a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor, according to the Associated Press.

Bridgeman was arrested in December after a woman staying with the family alerted police.

Bridgeman said he bound the girl to furniture because she sleepwalks. His wife, Jana Bridgeman, also pleaded guilty today but was not sentenced.
