“Parents place enormous trust in the people who care for their children, and when that is broken, it has lasting effects on families and the community. The defendant’s callous treatment of three toddlers was abusive and criminal, and my office will seek justice for the victims. People who work with children have a legal and moral responsibility to report any abuse and we will hold those accountable for failing to protect any children,” Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan said.
