An Elizabethtown man accused of spanking his stepchildren with a paddle appeared Tuesday in Hardin Circuit Court.
Donald Lee Begley, 47, is indicted on three counts of second-degree criminal abuse of a child 12 years old or younger and is being held in lieu of a $10,000 cash bond.
Begley’s attorney remanded a motion to request family court records Tuesday. His trial is set for June 23.
An indictment is an allegation, not proof of guilt.
Begley remains lodged in Hardin County Detention Center.
