Daniel Hun Chun, 40, pleaded guilty to a count of misdemeanor battery. Chun, who is scheduled to be sentenced March 5, faces up to six months in jail and a $2,000 fine, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Chun was initially charged in March with a count of child abuse and a count of corporal injury on a child, both felonies, according to prosecutors.
About 4 p.m., March 13, Chun hit the victim repeatedly with a variety of household items on his shoulders, back and backside, leaving welts and bruises on him, according to prosecutors.
Fullerton police were alerted when a school counselor noticed the boy’s wounds, prosecutors said.
Chun was initially facing up to six years in prison if convicted at trial of the felonies.
