Minimal Sentence For Boy Beater

A Hartford City man who beat up a 10-year-old boy gets 180 days: 22-year-old Paul Kelley had pleaded guilty to battery resulting in bodily injury to a person under the age of 14. He was facing up to six years in prison; the judge instead gave him a three-year sentence with the final 30 months suspended. After he is released from custody, Kelley will spend the rest of his sentence on probation.
