Troy police also noted in court records that they found more allegations of inappropriate touching and that it appeared the facility “was not reporting the accusations as required by state law.”
A state inspection on July 29 showed the childcare’s “program management and administration were informed of allegations of child abuse and concerning a child care staff member and the staff member was permitted to continue work with the children at the program.”
The inspection also showed the childcare failed to immediately notify their local children’s services agency about the suspicion that a child had been abused or neglected. JJJ Childcare also failed to report a “serious incident” in the Ohio Child Licensing and Quality System as required, the report read.
JJJ Childcare had its license to operate suspended following the inspection and the state is pursuing permanent revocation of the license. JJJ Childcare has until Oct. 4 to request a revocation hearing, Ohio Department of Job and Family Services spokesman Bret Crow said Wednesday.
“The license is still suspended and the center is not currently operating,” Crow said.
During the same July inspection, the state also found that 16 children were left unattended while a staff member used the restroom. The report does not specify how long the children were left alone.
The state also found the area where some children nap, rest or sleep was not lighted sufficiently “to allow child care staff visual supervision of the children at all times,” the report read.
Cain’s case is still being investigated and is expected to be presented to a grand jury once the investigation is complete, Troy police said.
