25 Years to Life in Prison for Daycare Worker Convicted of Sexual Abuse

Last Update: 7/13/2020

A former Anaheim daycare worker who was convicted of sexual abuse of two young girls was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison on Friday, January 4.

Daniel Antonio Martinez pleaded guilty to three counts of lewd acts upon a child under 14 and three counts of sexual penetration with a child under 10 years old on August 28, 2018. He was originally arrested on November 16, 2016.

Martinez worked at a daycare center called Magusa’s Family Childcare and Preschool, which was located in the 700 block of South Dale Avenue. That location no longer exists, but another facility called Magusa’s Family Daycare is currently located on the 8300 block of N. Dale Ave in Buena Park.

Police began investigating Martinez in November 2016 after a 6-year-old girl told a family member she was experiencing pain which was eventually determined to have been from digital penetration by Martinez. This initial investigation revealed that Martinez had also abused a 7-year-old girl at the daycare.

Justice for Victims of Daycare Sexual Abuse

Bobby Thompson is a daycare sexual abuse lawyer who represents sexual assault survivors in civil lawsuits. We’ve asked him to contribute some thoughts on the legal options available to survivors of sexual abuse in daycares and preschools:

“Sexual abuse causes unimaginable trauma for victims and their families. When the abuser is someone who was in a position of trust over children, these heinous crimes can traumatize the community at large as well. Cases of sexual abuse involving daycare employees raise many troubling questions. Along with prosecuting the abuser and making sure the victims and their families get the support they need, it’s also important to hold these facilities accountable if their negligence enabled the abuse to occur,” Mr. Thompson concluded.
