PIX11 reported that a daycare worker was arrested after being accused of abusing two girls while working at My Precious Little Angels Day Care located at 1238 Rev James A Polite Ave, The Bronx, NY 10459.
Prosecutors said Friday that a Bronx daycare worker sexually abused two girls between 2015 and 2020. 30-year-old Jamie Sanchez was employed at the My Precious Little Angels daycare in the Bronx at the time of the alleged abuse. According to officials, one of the girls was between the ages of 2 and 5, and the other was between 8 and 10.
Sanchez is facing charges including a first-degree count of sexual conduct against a child, two counts of second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, as well as two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. He moved to Florida in 2020 and was extradited back to New York on November 30, 2022.
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced sex abuse victim lawyer representing victims and their families in civil lawsuits in the state of New York. He recently sat down with Legal Herald to talk about how filing a daycare sexual abuse lawsuit for victims and their families to get the justice they deserve.
"Parents entrust their children to daycare workers to keep them safe during the day. This includes the safety, education, and development of the children. However, trust can be betrayed in the most unimaginable ways. When sexual abuse occurs at a daycare, it is crucial that the truth is revealed and those involved are held accountable."
"The trauma of a child being sexually molested at daycare should not be something that a parent has to endure. We need to investigate if the abuse could have been stopped or if the daycare's security was neglected. Safety policies should be in place for daycares to get licensed, but if the daycare's duty of care is not up to par, they should be held accountable. Sexual abuse victims and their families should seek legal advice from a sex abuse victim lawyer. The lawyer can look at the case to identify all parties and help them file a lawsuit for compensation."
