Alleged Daycare Abuse Update

I did a story in February about a mother who thought her son was being abused at an unlicensed, in-home daycare. As she grew more suspicious, she hid a recording device in his backpack. In her mind, the recording reinforced her belief that something wasn’t right. When the story aired, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office told me it was actively investigating the woman’s complaint. Now the case is in the hands of the Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Office and as a result is now considered a criminal matter.

The mother met with people in the D.A.’s office last week and was told she’d hear back from them soon.

Here’s the original story that aired in February:
