Judge says mom wasnt abusive in belt beating
A Will County has ruled a Mokena woman wasn't abusive for using a belt to discipline her child, who is the son of former Chicago Bull Eddie Curry.
Korie Kellogg was arrested after taking the 10-year-old to a hospital in April to treat swelling bruises on his back, leg and face. The wounds were caused by the belt she used to discipline the boy for getting into trouble at school. Police were called after a hospital staff member saw the injuries.
Will County Circuit Judge Daniel Rozak on Friday acquitted the 30-year-old Kellogg of a charge of aggravated battery to a child.
Prosecutors argued physically disciplining children is up to the parent but said what Kellogg did cross the line.
After Rozak's ruling, Kellogg's son hugged her.
