The case was not charged as a felony, but as a misdemeanor in Seattle Municipal Court.
"We learned from the police report that the child, thankfully, did not appear to have been injured in any way and we were told that the child received no medical treatment," said Dan Katzer, a spokesman for King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg. "In other words, the facts of this particular case didn't support this being a felony."
