BECKLEY (WVVA) -- Former Raleigh County Sheriff's Deputy, Randy Burgess, has been sentenced to one year of home incarceration Wednesday, following his guilty plea to domestic battery in November.

Burgess will not be able to have contact with his daughter, the victim, until the probation office allows for reunification and counseling. 

In Wednesday's hearing, the prosecution showed photos of the victim with bruises and lacerations all over her body.  Burgess' daughter has written the court though, saying she would like to see her father.

"In these cases, when it's happened once, of course you have to worry that it will happen again," says Kristen Keller, Raleigh County prosecuting attorney.  "That little girl was horrifically battered and the photos don't lie."

Burgess will have to register as a child abuse offender after his sentence.  He told the court he wants to reconcile with his family.

"My family has always come first," says the defendant. "I would appreciate the opportunity to be reunited with my family as a whole -- my son, my daughter, my wife -- in my home."

Burgess still faces additional charges he's being accused of committing while on bond for this case.  Those charges include fraud with an access device, breaking and entering into an automobile and embezzlement.
