Former Cincinnati City councilman Sam Malone has been found not guilty by a Hamilton County court.
Malone was arrested and charged with domestic violence when he apparently beat his son with a belt. The beating was punishment when he didn't check in with teachers on a school trip to King's Island.
Malone admitted to hitting his son with the belt and said that he was trying to teach his son to respect his elders.
