FORT WORTH, Texas — Former Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton has been indicted on a felony charge of injury to a child after his teenage daughter accused him of beating her. 

A Tarrant County grand jury indicted the 38-year-old Hamilton on Monday. He remains free on a $30,000 bond after he turned himself into authorities on Oct. 30. 

If convicted, he faces a prison sentence of two to 10 years in prison. His attorneys say the Texas Rangers Hall of Famer is innocent of the charge.

 His 14-year-old daughter told her mother, Hamilton's ex-wife, that her father struck her after he became enraged by a comment from her.
