WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (Dec. 3, 2015)— A Washington County mother was arrested on battery charges after the father of her children recorded an incident of alleged child abuse and posted the video on social media.
Kendra Beswick, 24, was arrested on two felony counts of battery on a child under the age of 14.
Troopers with the Indiana State Police began investigating on Nov. 30 after the father of the children reported he believed two of his children were being abused by their mother, Beswick. He told police he filmed an incident with a hidden camera and posted it on Facebook.
The case was turned over to the Washington County Prosecutor’s Office, and a warrant was issued Wednesday for Beswick’s arrest.
