CANTON, Ohio, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- An Ohio man will spend most of January in jail for bullying the disabled daughter of his next-door neighbors, a judge decided.

Municipal Judge John A. Poulos handed William M. Bailey a 29-day jail sentence for mocking Hope Knight, 10, who suffers from cerebral palsy and needs crutches to walk, The (Canton, Ohio) Repository reported.

Hope's mother, Tricia, said her daughter is afraid of Bailey.

"She wants the blinds closed. She doesn't want to go outside," Tricia Knight said.

Charges of disorderly conduct and aggravated menacing were filed against Bailey last month,

He pleaded "no contest" Tuesday to amended charges and was ordered to report to jail Jan. 2 and to pay $400 in court costs and fines.
