Cleaner jailed 14 months for beating 9-year-old son
A cleaner was jailed for 14 months on Thursday for assaulting his nine-year-old for stealing $50 from him.
The 28-year-old accused cannot be named to protect the identity of the victim.
He admitted last month to ill-treating his son by slapping, kicking and punching the boy on the face, body and legs at his home on April 10.
A Community Court heard that the accused, a divorcee, found $50 missing from his wallet that morning and suspected his son had taken it without his permission.
