PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Kristopher Harvey, a Surprise father who admitted he forced his visiting teenage sons to drink hard liquor as a form of punishment, was sentenced to three years of probation for child abuse.

Judge Dawn Bergin sentenced Harvey on Wednesday as part of a plea agreement.

Harvey said his teenage sons were visiting from California earlier this month when he found out they were taking alcohol when he wasn't home.

Harvey told CBS 5 News that's when he made his 13 and 14-year-old sons drink three shots each of hard liquor.

A neighbor heard to the boys screaming in the pool, called 911, and Harvey was arrested.

Harvey was accused of throwing the boys in the pool. But he says they jumped in and were making noise as a result of being intoxicated.
