As previously reported, the father who took out some frustration in the form of whipping his misbehaving daughters with a cable wire is now facing criminal charges for the act. The Dayton, Oh. father has been accused of
allegedly beating his children with a video cable from his television and DVD system.
ABC-22 reports that Greg Horn, 35, was indicted after a video reportedly featuring him and the girls surfaced online and went viral. He has been indicted on charges of child endangering and corporeal punishment. The girls were visiting their father and according to police, Horn beat them for allegedly sneaking out of the house. It was earlier said that Horn was furious at his daughters for recording a “twerk” dance video to post on Facebook. That detail has not been officially confirmed.
Police were alerted to Horn's residence by the girls' mother, who noticed that one of the girls had welts on her thighs along with open wounds. Curiously enough, the charges come during the first week of Child Abuse Awareness Month. An official from Montgomery County Child Services spoke on the dangers of child abuse with ABC-22.
“The goal is to always keep kids safe," said Kevin Lavoie from Montgomery County Children Services. "We don't want people to have any reservations about calling 224- KIDS and letting us know about a circumstance or a concern."
The graphic video displayed the brutal beating, causing some viewers to respond negatively while others praised the act as good parenting. For those calling for justice, their call was eventually heard. According to Mugshotsonline.com, Horn has been in trouble with the law before after an arrest for parole violation back in December.
Horn is scheduled in court on April 16 for an arraignment hearing.
