Dad pleads no contest to assaulting 15-year-old son; dad ordered to stay away unless family court "orders visitation contact" (Long Beach, California)

Not even a slap on the wrist. Dad SALIM MICHAEL KHOURY wastes the tax payers money on useless classes. Even the 10-year ban from seeing the assault victim, his son, means nothing since it can be overturned by family court at any time. And probably will be given that this is California. Meaning a kid who is just weeks away from being a legal adult can be forced to spend time with an violent abuser. Sickening.

Posted: 05/29/14, 3:36 PM PDT | A Long Beach man accused of assaulting his so pleaded no contest to child abuse charges Wednesday and was ordered to stay away from the teen for the next decade, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.

Salim Michael Khoury, 57, was immediately sentenced by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Jessie I. Rodriguez to five years of formal probation.

Under the terms of the negotiated plea agreement, Khoury also is required to attend parenting and anger management classes for one year and perform 120 days of Caltrans service.

Khoury was also ordered to stay away from his 15-year-old son for 10 years unless a family court orders visitation contact.

Authorities say Khoury beat up his son after a family disagreement on Feb. 10. The extent of his injuries at the time of the attack were not disclosed.
