Man who encouraged 12-year-old daughter to fight pleads guilty

News

A dad has pleaded guilty after egging on his 12-year-old daughter in a fight. 

It was back in August when Mark Pappas’ daughter and another girl started exchanging blows at Mesa Contrera Park in Rio Rancho. Witnesses said it started when the other girl called Pappas’ daughter “rude.”

Pappas was facing up to six years behind bars, but under the terms of his plea deal, he’ll serve no more than three. 

Pappas pleaded guilty to child abuse and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, which are all felonies.
