WAYNESVILLE, Ohio - An Ohio landlord accused of whipping an adult tenant with a belt on his bare buttocks for falling behind on his rent has been accused of whipping another man with a belt and a paddle.
This time, according to The Dayton Daily News, the accusations came in a lawsuit. It was filed this week in Warren County and accuses 53-year-old Ronald Kronenberger of spanking a mentally disabled man at his office at a supermarket.
Kronenberger was accused of whipping the first man Jan. 22 in his office. A magistrate said he would dismiss the assault charge in six months if Kronenberger has no contact with the tenant and stays out of trouble.
Police say they have no record of the second incident. Kronenberger and his lawyer declined to comment.
