Child Cruelty: Augusta Dad Makes 7-Year-Old Daughter Strip Naked for Belt Lashing


DANIEL-2A young father in Augusta was arrested for child cruelty Wednesday when his 7-year-old daughter showed up at school with injuries from a vicious belt lashing, authorities said.

Andreas Deon Daniel, 25 (pictured), of the 3200 block of Kevin Drive, Augusta, was charged with cruelty to children in the first degree.

The little girl showed up Wednesday morning at Dorothy Hines Elementary School with injuries that drew the attention of her teacher and the school nurse. They called an ambulance to take her to Augusta University Medical Center. The pupil had bruises and belt marks all over her body, including her face, head, entire back, upper buttocks, both legs, shoulders, and both arms, a report says.

The victim told a school social worker and hospital staff that her dad had beaten her with a belt for getting into trouble at school the day before.

“Her father whipped her last night while she was standing and also continued to whip her once she fell to the floor from the pain,” a sheriff’s report says. “Her father made her remove her clothing before he whipped her.”

At the hospital, Dr. Amanda Andrews told investigators that “without a doubt, the injuries were way over the threshold for legal parental disciplinary action.”

DFACS officials was notified and took responsibility for the girl, a report says. Daniel remained in jail on Thursday morning without bond.

  1. how can one do such horrible acts to their own child ? ? Makes me sick,with so many people willing to give anything & everything they own to have a precious child to love this clown … well I just have no words …………….My heart goes to this little girl

  2. Just a fascinatingly sick lil area we live in, folks. Instead of a wall being built at the Mexican / US border, we need one around those special areas of town to keep the animals in. I hope this piece of human debris gets very special treatment in the iron bar hotel.

    • No sir,, all we need to start being humans again and stop treating our fellow people like dirt ,but then again I don’t think that will happen any time soon . A wall might not be a bad start, least ways we know where they “exist” .” Iron bar hotel” I like that ! ! ! !
