Man gets 2 years for forcing sons to fight

BELFAST, ME Twenty-six-year-old Pedro Delgado-Bristol pleaded guilty Tuesday in Waldo County Superior Court to assault and other charges.

The Bangor Daily News says the boys told detectives they were forced to punch, kick and knee each other on Jan. 9 at Delgado-Bristol's Rockport home. The boys also told investigators Delgado-Bristol hit the younger boy with a sandal when the boy refused to fight any more.

The boys' mother saw the injuries and reported the father to authorities.

A judge called Delgado-Bristol's actions "depraved" and barred him from having unsupervised contact with either boy.
