A Salmon Arm couple found guilty of assault for spanking their 14-year-old daughter will find out their fate tomorrow.
The pair were convicted back in January, in a case that raised new questions about parental discipline.
The incident happened in February of 2015, after the girl’s parents found out she’d sent nude pictures through Snapchat to a young man.
As punishment, her father spanked her using a small plastic hockey stick, and her mother using a skipping rope.
The teen told her friends what had happened, when they noticed her skin was swollen and covered in bruises.
The judge ruled the parents actions were degrading, had been done purely to punish the girl rather to correct her behaviour, and amounted to excessive corporal punishment.
