A central Pennsylvania man was convicted for beating his wife when she didn't address him as "sir" in front of their kids.

Lancaster County prosecutors said 49-year-old Dan Kirby Kopp of Ephrata routinely beat his wife with a wooden paddle or his hand when he believed she was disrespectful.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era said a jury convicted Kopp of misdemeanor stalking and harassment.

According to court documents, Kopp would take his wife over his knee and spank her in order to "teach her a lesson."

He was sentenced Tuesday to one to 23 months in prison and one year parole, and was ordered to stay away from his now-estranged wife.

The wife used an iPhone to videotape a Sept. 2012 beating, which was shown to jurors.

The video shows the 6-foot-5, 230 pound man beating her with a paddle for not addressing him with "Yes, sir."
