Daycare Owner Charged With Child Sexual Abuse

According to KTLA, Riverside Police Department arrested Ladislao Diaz-Cuevas, 53, on Friday on suspicion of child sexual abuse charges. Diaz-Cuevas operates the Little Steps Family Daycare located in the 11000 block of Oriole Drive in Riverside, California.

The investigation began when two victims came forward in January 2023 and December 2022, respectively, accusing Diaz-Cuevas of sexually abusing a child. The alleged abuse took place three years ago.

Diaz-Cuevas was arrested on charges of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14 and is currently being held on $500,000 bail. The Riverside Police Department is concerned there may be additional victims of Diaz-Cuevas who have not been identified and are asking for anyone with information to come forward.

Little Steps Family Daycare is currently closed, and police are advising parents to find alternate daycare arrangements. This is an ongoing investigation, and more details will be released as they become available.

Home Daycare Sex Abuse: What Can Victims Do?

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau is an experienced sex assault lawyer in California. Bobby represents victims of child sex abuse along with their families in civil lawsuits. He recently shared his thoughts on filing a daycare sexual abuse lawsuit.

Daycare providers have an important responsibility to ensure the safety and welfare of the children they care for. This includes providing a safe, nurturing environment that promotes children's physical, emotional, and social development. Daycare providers must be aware of the laws and regulations in their state that mandate the safety and security of children, and these laws must be followed.

At the same time, those responsible for licensing home daycares have an equally important obligation to ensure the safety of the children in their care. This includes conducting background checks on daycare staff and investigating any reports of sexual misconduct. In addition, licensing officials should require that all daycare providers adhere to certain safety standards, such as proper supervision and appropriate activities for the children.

Victims of daycare sexual abuse and their guardians have the legal right to file a civil lawsuit against negligent daycares and other parties. If safety measures were not taken to ensure the safety of the children, all responsible parties may be held liable. Victims and their parents should seek the guidance of an experienced sexual assault lawyer to get the justice they deserve after such a traumatic experience.
