BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck man accused of beating his girlfriend’s two children with an extension cord will spend 1 ½ years on probation.

Thirty-seven-year-old Lekemia Caster earlier this month changed his plea to guilty on two felony child abuse counts. Court documents show he was given credit for the 12 days he’d already spent in jail, ordered to pay $525 in fees and put on probation for 18 months.

Authorities say Caster whipped a 6-year-old child and a 12-year-old with the extension cord in October 2014, creating welts.
