    Angry Calif. parents asked man to beat child

    Officials: Calif. parents asked man to beat child

    Saturday, December 10, 2011 3:56 PM EST


    IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — An Irvine couple who suspected their 15-year-old son of smoking turned to a man believed to be relied on in their church to violently discipline children, authorities said.

    The parents asked Paul Kim, 39, to discipline their son after finding a lighter in his possession, dropping the boy off at Kim's Chino Hills home with permission for the beating, San Bernardino County sheriff's spokesperson Cindy Bachmann said Saturday.

    Kim hit the child with a metal pole about a dozen times, causing severe bruising on his legs, according to Bachmann. The pole was about an inch in diameter, investigators said.

    An adult at the boy's school saw the bruises and called Irvine police, who in turn informed San Bernardino County officials, she said.

    Man held in boy's disciplining with metal rod at parents' request
    December 10, 2011


    A man who allegedly struck a 15-year-old Irvine boy with a metal pole after the boys’ parents asked him to discipline the youth on their behalf has been booked on suspicion of felony willful cruelty to a child, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

    Investigators said the boy's parents found a lighter in his possession and suspected that he was smoking. The boy, who was not identified because he is a minor, was taken to the home of Paul Kim, 39, of Chino Hills, who attends the same La Habra church as the boy's family. Authorities said Kim had been used by other families to discipline their children.

    Kim reportedly questioned the boy about the lighter and suspected that the teen was lying to him.

    "After receiving permission from the victim’s father to use corporal punishment, Kim struck the child approximately 12 times with a metal pole, which was about 1” in diameter, on the back of the legs, causing injuries,” the department said in a statement Saturday
