He was charged with one felony count of child abuse and one felony count of corporal injury on a child and faces a maximum sentence of six years in state prison.
The police department was notified of the assault after a school counselor noticed the child’s injuries.
Chun was released from custody on $100,000 bail and is tentatively set to appear in court May 6 at the North Justice Center in Fullerton.
