In the live broadcast of the trial, the prosecutor alleged that from August 2016 to November 2018, He Mou had beaten and abused the flower in his life for physical and mental destruction and torture. He Mou also forced the flower to beg for food, drink and smoke. In November 2018, He Mou beat the flowers eyes and made it slightly injured. The next day, he went to the villagers house to ask for money forcibly and was caught by the police.
The prosecutor also provided Xiaohuas statement to the police in the police station in 2018. Xiaohua said that her father was not kind to her and often scolded her. He asked her to go out to beg for money and food. She would beat her regardless of whether she had drunk or not. If she had no money at home, she would go out to beg for money to buy cigarettes and drinks for her father. He not only teaches Xiaohua how to speak when he begs for food, If you cant ask me to leave, you can beat me and scold me if you dont go.
He Mou has no objection to the statement of Xiaohua. He claims that he can not control himself because of family changes and his wife drinks after she leaves. He feels guilty about his behavior. He was sentenced to one year and six monthsimprisonment for ill-treatment by the court.
