A one-time Elba Police officer is arrested on charges of torture and willful abuse of a child.
Twenty-eight-year-old Jeffery Fuller reportedly confessed to paddling a three-year-old child, and then placing the child on a hot pad at his home.
Coffee County Sheriff Dave Sutton says the child was badly bruised and blood was coming from the wounds. Fuller was booked into the coffee county jail and later released on a 5-thousand dollars bond. He's been ordered *not* to have any contact with the child, who is currently in the custody of the state.
