Man sentenced to prison for tattooing 3-year-old nephew
A man in New Mexico has been sentenced to six months in federal prison for using homemade instruments to tattoo the letter “I” on the arm of his 3-year-old nephew.
Prosecutors say that 29-year-old Cruz Tenorio was sentenced Tuesday. He must serve six months in a half-way house when he’s released from prison.
The court also ordered Tenorio to pay restitution. Prosecutors say that will ensure the child has access to any needed medical or psychological services, including the removal of the tattoo.
