Lynnwood man gets 3 years for hurting stepdaughter

EVERETT (AP) — A Lynnwood man who tied up his 4-year-old stepdaughter and shot her with Airsoft plastic BBs was sentenced Monday to more than three years in prison.

A jury found 27-year-old Stetson Tedder guilty of domestic violence child assault and unlawful imprisonment.

The Daily Herald reports the girl was covered in dozens of welts and had scars on her wrists and ankles, apparently from being bound with zip ties.

Snohomish County Superior Court Judge George Bowden gave Tedder a sentence in the middle of the possible range. The judge noted Tedder was an Air Force veteran who served in Iraq and had no criminal history.

The judge noted the girl’s tender age but also said, “The reality is children don’t come with operation manuals.”
