PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The mother of a missing Maine toddler and her supporters screamed at the girl's father after a court hearing in which he pleaded guilty to an unrelated charge.
Justin DiPietro, father of Ayla Reynolds, was sentenced Wednesday to four days in jail for violating conditions of his release on an assault charge.
As he walked out of the Portland courthouse with his lawyer, Trista Reynolds and about a dozen supporters started running after him.
DiPietro and his court-appointed lawyer, Gerard Conley Jr., ducked into the police station where the crowd surrounded them. They called him names, including "murderer" and shouted "Where's Ayla?"
DiPietro looked away and stayed composed until he eventually took off running as Reynolds and her father gave chase.
Ayla Reynolds disappeared in December 2011. She's presumed dead.
