Two Daycare Workers Arrested For Abusing Child

CBSLA has reported that two daycare workers were arrested for abusing at least one child at the Kiddie Academy In Rancho Cucamonga, located at 7220 Victoria Park Ln, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739. 

On September 4, 2021, an eight-month-old was admitted to the Loma Linda University Medical Center's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit with a skull fracture. An intense investigation determined that two daycare workers, 29-year-old Rudie Megan Maldonado and 50-year-old Felicia Ann Ferra, had attempted to conceal the baby's injuries in addition to the neglect of his well-being. The two women were arrested on Thursday, January 13, 2022. 

As the investigation was conducted, other parents came forward with accusations of questionable behavior witnessed at the daycare. One person witnessed a girl being dragged around by her leg. Another described that on multiple occasions, they saw infants unattended lying on the floor. Police are concerned that there may be more victims of the horrific abuse.

Can I Sue If My Child Was Abused At a Daycare?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced child abuse attorney in California. Bobby recently sat down with us to discuss the legal rights available to the families of victims abused at daycares.

"Parents entrust their children to daycare centers each day. These facilities are designed to provide educational and social activities for children in a safe environment during the day. Sadly, there is an increase in reports of children being abused in these facilities, some leading to serious immediate and long-term consequences. In fact, more than 30,000 children across the country are taken to emergency rooms each year due to the abuse they have suffered in a daycare setting."

"Daycares have a legal obligation to maintain a safe and secure environment for the children in their care. The well-being of the children should be a top priority. Daycare owners should implement safety measures to ensure the children are safe. This can be achieved by installing monitoring video surveillance, having an appropriate number of workers for the children, and sufficient safeguards for each child. If a daycare fails to offer ample security for the well-being of the children or is understaffed, they can be deemed negligent."

"Furthermore, if the daycare has a history of neglect or abuse that went without being addressed, the daycare owner could be held liable. In cases of neglect, families of victims abused at daycare may have the legal option to file a civil lawsuit against the daycare. By talking with an experienced child abuse attorney, families can explore their legal options, which may even include financial compensation."
