Joe Rickey Hundley, Plead Guilty for Slapping 19 month old child on plane ( “shut that nigger baby up”)


Earlier this year, sixty year old Joe Rickey Hundley,  slapped a 19th month old child for crying on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta .

Hundley faces a maximum of one year in prison (and a $100,000 fine) for assaulting someone under the age of 16, Prosecutors will recommend a six-month prison term when Hundley is sentenced in January.

Hundley was seated in row 28 next to Jessica Bennett and her 19-month-old son Jonah (who shared seat 28B). According to Bennett, as the MD-90 twin-engine jet began its descent into Atlanta, Jonah “started to cry due to the altitude change.”  Bennett told investigators that she “was trying to get [Jonah] to stop crying, but he continue

As her son continued to cryl, Bennett said, Hundley used the racial epithet and demanded that she quiet him. He then “turned around and slapped” the toddler in the face “with an open hand, which caused the juvenile victim to scream even louder,” according to FBI Agent Daron Cheney. The slap, Bennett recalled, “caused a scratch below [Jonah’s] right eye.”

A passenger on the flight told investigators that he “heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft” and saw Hundley strike the toddler.

Hundley claimed that he only “asked the mother to quiet the child.” He denied striking Jonah (seen at left) or using a racial slur,

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
