Fairfax County Daycare Employee Accused of Child Sex Abuse
A daycare worker in Fairfax County, Virginia has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing multiple children over a period of several years.
38-year-old Rolly Hammond is charged with multiple counts of aggravated sexual battery against children. He had been employed as a daycare worker for the Department of Family Services School Age Child Care program since 2008. This program is held at West Springfield Elementary School.
According to the police, someone contacted Child Protective Services on March 27 to report that a child had been touched inappropriately by Hammond. This led to an investigation, which revealed a second victim who spoke about being abused by Hammond for years.
Hammond faces charges of three counts of aggravated sexual battery, one count of forcible sodomy, and one count of indecent liberties by a custodian.
He has worked at several schools in the area, including West Springfield Elementary, Ravensworth Elementary, and Rolling Valley Elementary.
