A Pulaski County jury has recommended a 15 year sentence for a man convicted of criminal abuse of his children.
The jury found Patrick O'Conner guilty of locking three children in bedrooms that did not have air conditioning.
The incident happened back in August 2007.
The Commonwealth Journal reports the children's doors were wedged shut with a screwdriver.
The children were seven months, two years and three years old at the time.
