Home Daycare Provider Arrested on Charges of Sexual Assault

According to Northcentral PA, a daycare owner was arrested amid accusations they sexually assaulted a child at their licensed daycare located in the 500 block of Little League Road in Limestone Township, PA. 

On December 8, 2021, 64-year-old Argyle Kent Snyder was arrested. A victim picked him out of a photograph lineup, claiming he sexually assaulted her when she was only five years old. After she was dropped off at the home-based daycare, the victim alleged that Snyder forced her to touch his genitals while he fondled hers. She claimed the abuse continued for about an hour. 

Synder was released on bail but is facing charges of felony second-degree aggravated indecent assault and third-degree institutional sexual assault.

Can Daycares Be Held Liable in Sexual Abuse Lawsuits?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced Pennsylvania sex abuse victim lawyer. For years, Brian has represented sex abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Recently he shared some information on when a daycare can be liable for sexual abuse.

"Parents trust daycares with their children each day to offer them an education and help them develop. They especially trust them to keep their kids safe from danger, including sexual predators. However, when this trust is broken, it is vital that those responsible are held accountable for their actions." 

"When a predator is allowed to own or work at a daycare, they take advantage of their positions of power and trust by exploiting their victims. Daycares should implement safety precautions to reduce the risk of dangers. This may include conducting background checks on all staff members and investigating and reporting incidents of misconduct. A daycare's failure to provide safety measures can lead them to be considered negligent. In many cases of negligence, victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit. An experienced sex abuse victim lawyer can work with the victim and their family to ensure they understand their legal rights."
