BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky school teacher is
accused of whipping his young son with a belt because he didn't
like the way the boy was playing hopscotch.
Boone County Sheriff Michael A. Helmig's office said in a news
release that 46-year-old Christopher Robinson of Union is charged
with felony child abuse after his 5-year-old son was severely
bruised in the incident on July 4.
Robinson was released on $500 bond after surrendering at the
sheriff's office on Monday afternoon.
The Kentucky Enquirer reported sheriff's officials confirmed
Robinson works at Camp Ernst Middle School in Burlington. The
newspaper said he is a seventh-grade social studies teacher.
There was no attorney listed for Robinson in jail records.
