An investigation into disciplinary action taken at a Brenham elementary school has now been turned over to the Washington County District Attorney's Office.
The parents of a 4-year-old claims their son was spanked too hard last week.
They filed a complaint with Brenham Police.
The Washington County District Attorney says he will review the case and take it to a grand jury later this month.
School officials said they had written and verbal permission to use corporal punishment on the boy.
