In Arizona, Jury finds grandfather guilty of child abuse in Grand Canyon hikes | Child Abuse

Reportedly, an Arizona jury on Wednesday found a man guilty of child abuse for forcing his grandsons on grueling hikes in the Grand Canyon in searing August heat even as the boys threw up and two of them repeatedly fell because of cramping.
The jury reportedly found 45-year-old Christopher Alan Carlson of Indianapolis guilty of three of six charges of child abuse stemming from the hikes on Aug. 15 and Aug. 28, when his three grandsons were 8, 9 and 12. Each hike lasted more than 15 miles.
Carlson reportedly could face life in prison when he is sentenced June 1.
