Ohio Father Accused Of Taping Up Daughter, Locking Her In Cage

(CNN) -- A Cincinnati man was in court Friday after authorities say he disciplined his daughter by twice tying her up with duct tape, then locking her in a dog cage.

In a Hamilton County court Friday, Judge Fanon Rucker set $50,000 bail for James Tapke after he was charged with endangering children. The defendant, along with his son, allegedly took photos of the entire incident that ended up online.

 Tapke's lawyer said during the court session that his client didn't commit a crime, but rather took part in "a joke that got out of control."
