A man was given a three-year suspended jailterm and fined 3,000 baht after he was found guilty of assaulting a seven-year old boy whom he accused of bullying his own son.
The defendant, Amnart Talapthong, was charged with assaulting a neighbour’s seven-year old son by stomping on the latter’s head with his leg after the boy allegedly bullied his own son. The incident occurred in Ban Uah-arthorn Panya Ram-inthra housing estate in Min Buri on October 4.
The Min Buri court ruled that Amnart’s violent act against the boy was brutal and handed down on him three-year imprisonment plus 6,000 baht in fine.
But for the benefit of his confession and his agreement to pay 10,000 baht in compensation to the boy, the court commuted the sentence by half and suspended the jailterm for three years.
