Clearfield – A 36-year-old Clearfield man has pleaded guilty to child abuse charges.
Kyle Couturiaux had been scheduled for a three-day trial in Clearfield County Court before a plea agreement was negotiated.
He will be sentenced within the next 60 days.
Couturiaux had been charged with conspiracy, aggravated assault, and child endangerment for the alleged abuse of a young boy.
According to court documents, an investigation earlier this year revealed that the boy suffered from multiple bumps, bruises, abrasions, and welts on various parts of his body.
