UPDATE: Del. man pleads guilty to assault of disabled man in Pennsylvania

WEST CHESTER. Pa. - A Georgetown man has pleaded guilty to his role in an assault of a man with cerebral palsy, in Pennsylvania.

According to WPVI, the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia, 29-year-old Barry Baker Jr., of Georgetown, has pleaded guilty to assault charges stemming from an incident that happened on May 10, West Chester, PA.

On that day, around 2:30 AM, Baker punched a disabled man in the face outside of a 7-Eleven, in the 200 block of South High Street.

Baker apparently disagreed with a summary of the case read by a judge in court, on Monday. WPVI reports that as Baker's trial was set to begin, it was revealed that a key piece of evidence disproved Baker's claim that he had been fighting with the victim in a bar prior to the attack, which was caught on camera. At that point, he reportedly entered a guilty plea.

Baker is expected to be sentenced at a later date.
