A Waterloo man has pleaded guilty to beating his 11-year-old son.

According to online court records, 41-year-old Antiwan Curry pleaded guilty to child endangerment causing bodily injury.  The charge of child endangerment causing serious injury was dismissed.

Waterloo Police were called to George Washington Carver Academy in March for a report of possible child abuse.

Officers talked to the 11-year-old who told them he had been beaten by his father, Curry, on several occasions.

The victim told police that on March 7, he was arrested at school and afterwards, his father punched him in the right eye causing his vision to become blurry. The victim was taken to the hospital, where it was found he had broken bones in his right eye.

Curry was found hiding in the attic of 225 E. Mullan Avenue when police went to talk to him. He admitted to police that he had beat his son and demonstrated to officers how he did it.

Curry also admitted to police that his son complained of blurry vision but denied him medical attention.

The victim also told police that on March 17, his father hit him 10 to 11 times with a cord while punching him. The boy had cuts and bruises all over his body. The boy's mom verified the information with police.

According to online court records, Curry has a history of drug, weapons and parole violations.

Curry was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
