Daniel Kelly was convicted of felony child neglect in the 2006 death of his 14-year-old daughter, Danieal. She weighed just 42 pounds when she died and had maggot-infested bedsores.
The father once had custody of the girl but abandoned her with her unfit mother. Andrea Kelly was convicted of third-degree murder.
A judge on Thursday also sentenced two social workers who failed Danieal to the same 2½- to five-year term.
The horrifying case prompted the firings of several city officials. More than a dozen people have been convicted in state and federal investigations.
