Punishment of Juveniles in Florida
Florida law at the time did not allow beating or corporal punishment for adults in jail:

Florida law does not permit beating or Corporal punishment of adults in jail. It does allow children
to be whipped, strapped and paddled. This is done, Judge Walter Beckham has said, under the
law permitting Corporal punishment as "applied by a loving parent." But the children's bureau of
the U.S. Department of Health,Education and Welfare said in its guidelines for juvenile
lockups: "Corporal punishment should not be tolerated in any form."
