The father convicted of taping his daughter's mouth shut could be looking forward to a lesser charge.

Andre Curry was found guilty earlier this month of aggravated battery after posting a picture on Facebook of his 2-year-old daughter bound and gagged with painter's tape.

Curry's lawyers say that the felony charge is just too high.

Curry's current charge faces a sentence from probation to 7 years in prison.
