New York man pleads guilty to tooth-pulling charge

Posted: Updated:

GALLUPVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - A Schoharie County man charged with using pliers to pull three of his 8-year-old foster daughter's permanent teeth has pleaded guilty to assault.

Ryan McAllister, lawyer for 35-year-old Steven Walker of Gallupville, tells the Albany Times Union his client entered an Alford plea on Friday, which allows him to plead guilty while insisting on his innocence. Walker says he has no knowledge of what happened to the girl's teeth.

Police say the child has been placed in another foster home.

Walker is expected to be sentenced to four years in prison on Jan. 7.
