Updated:

Administrators of JS Clark Charter School contacted the OPD and advised that a 16yr old female student appeared to have been severely beaten by her father. The child had bruises to her legs, arms, and chest area.


Through the course of the investigation the assigned officer learned that the victims father, 41 year old James Andrus Jr of 1021 Stardust St Opel., handcuffed his daughter behind her back then proceeded to whip her repeatedly with a belt. According to Mr. Andrus he was attempting to discipline his child for breaking a number of house rules, however, as he stated, he lost control. OCS was notified and removed her from her fathers home. She is now in the custody of her mother.


Andrus has been charged with cruelty to a juvenile.
