Allegations that a Jasper day care worker suspended a child over a dumpster with duct tape led to a two-week investigation by Child Protective Services (CPS) and the arrest of the worker and her husband. The East-Texas couple, Julia and George Block, were arrested Friday morning and are under investigation for potentially harsh or cruel actions or unusual treatment.
Original allegations against the Young Years Day Care Center were made via the CPS hotline March 13. It is frightening to know that a parent trusted this day care with the care of his or her child – and that something like this could happen. It is important to research a child care facility and make sure all staff members are certified and properly screened. If you suspect that your child has suffered abuse or neglect while in a day care facility, contact a day care abuse attorney via e-mail or by calling 1-877-403-9378.
