Well for those of you who aren’t aware, Christopher Robison was arrested and charged with child abuse after his ex-wife called police on him regarding some injuries on their 5-year-old son. The original reports, including us, used a variety of “Man beat kid over hopsctoch” type titles, but the real reason for the spanking was because the boy was talking back to him.
He denied he abused the boy and told police the bruises in question came from an earlier fall in the pool. After having his face plastered all over the media, he began making appearances on radio shows to defend himself and I ended up feeling like he got a raw deal from a vindictive ex. The charges against him were later dropped, but his ordeal was far from over.
He is still seen by some as a child abuser, his teaching job is one hold, and his current relationship with his kids has been negatively altered. So he is suing. He is suing his ex, Sharon Robison, Boone County Sheriff’s Department investigator Detective Tracy Watson and Commonwealth Attorney Linda Tally Smith.
The suit alleges Robison was just trying to get full custody of the kids and that she used her friendship with Smith to achieve that goal. The lawsuit alleges malicious prosecution, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation and invasion of privacy. Robison is seeking damages and court costs. Not gonna lie, I hope he wins.Tags: Beating, belt, Child Abuse, Christopher Robison, Crime, Divorce, hopscotch, Kentucky, teacher
