LUDLOW, KY (FOX19) -
A Northern Kentucky daycare worker has been arrested after being accused of taping a child to a mat at nap time.
On Wednesday, police arrested Alicia Lyons, 20, on a charge of criminal abuse.
She's being accused of securing a child to a mat at nap time with duct tape at Mustard Seeds childcare in Ludlow. According to a police report, "Lyons admitted to taping the child to a mat to get him to calm down."
Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders says, "These allegations were brought to the attention of the child's mother a couple months after the fact by one of the other workers at the daycare and then the mother contact Ludlow police."
Sanders says this was not some sort of game.
"I'm confident to say that any sort of game or innocent excuse has been ruled out. If that were the case we wouldn't have pursued criminal charges."
Kentucky requires daycare workers to undergo a criminal background check and a check for abuse and neglect, but child care expert Laura Heuser with 4C Children says that may not be enough. "Parents are surprised when they find out that these requirements are so minimal. There are no requirements to submit anything from a physician that you're in good mental capacity to care for children," she said.
The incident is also being investigated by the state. Investigators are trying to determine if anyone else knew about the incident, but failed to report it.
The daycare said in a statement that they conducted an investigation into the allegations and Lyons admitted to the act.
After Lyons' admission of guilt, Mustard Seeds says they fired her and notified police.
Lyons had been an employee at daycare facility since Aug. 18, 2011.
Mustard Seeds says she passed all background checks required under state law.
Lyons has been released on a $2,500 unsecured bond.
She's set to be arraigned in Kenton County Friday morning.
Mustard Seeds says they are installing cameras at all three of their Kentucky daycares and changing some training procedures to insure this doesn't happen again.
Mustard Seeds Childcare is cooperating fully with Ludlow police and state officials investigating an abuse allegation against a former employee at its Ludlow facility and the daycare is taking action toMore>>
