A Pennsylvania man was arrested for sexually assaulting a preteen girl at a private residence that is also a licensed day care. He is charged with two counts of forcible sodomy and one count of aggravated sexual battery. The toddler victim was in the care of day care workers when she was sexually assaulted. The toddler's parents noticed her unusual behavior when they came to pick her up at the day care. Upon questioning, the girl described the sexual assault to her parents, who then took her to the hospital.
When parents leave their child in a day care center, they trust that their child will be taken care of by the licensed day care personnel. No parent can imagine that brutal sexual assault can take place in a day care for toddlers. Yet, it seems that rape can occur in any setting if those who are entrusted to take care of children in their custody fail to do so, allowing sexual abuse and assault to happen to innocent, vulnerable kids.
Sexual abuse leaves emotional scars that last a lifetime. The criminal court system punishes perpetrators of sexual assault. But in order to recover financial compensation, victims and their families must file lawsuits in civil court.
