James Freeman of DeKalb County, Georgia was sentenced to one month in jail for spanking a 2-year-old last year. James, 67, said the boy tore up plants in his yard and ripped out protective fencing, then ignored his orders to stop. That’s when he disciplined the boy. This afternoon, a jury found him guilty of simple battery. James was also given 11 months probation and ordered to attend anger management classes. He plans to appeal.
