The Associated Press
The Steubenville Herald-Star (http://bit.ly/XIPyv3 ) reports that 30-year-old James A. Taylor was sentenced Thursday and also must serve two years' probation.
Taylor and 26-year-old Samantha M. Taylor, the children's stepmother, pleaded guilty last month to charges including felony child endangerment. She has not yet been sentenced.
Authorities said the children, ages 5, 6 and 8, were crammed into the boxes as punishment June 16 at the family home in Steubenville while the parents went to the grocery store and left two adults with them. A friend arrived and contacted police. The children are now living with other relatives.
