White supremacist admits biting boy

Twenty-year-old Dmitriy Sklyarov of rural Muncie also was fined $100 fine under the deal. Prosecutors dismissed a charge of neglect of a dependent.

Investigators said Sklyarov bit the boy at least 13 times on the arms and legs last Oct. 8.

Delaware Circuit Court Judge Thomas Cannon Jr. accepted the terms of the plea agreement during a hearing last week. Sklyarov was scheduled to go on trial tomorrow. He's currently serving a 90-day jail sentence for contempt of court after cursing a judge during a previous hearing.

Public defender Steven Bruce says his client was engaged in horseplay with the child when the boy bit him, so Sklyarov bit him back.
