A former day care worker at the New Beginning’s Day Care Center in Moselle, Mississippi pleaded guilty to charges of child molestation and sexual battery. Derrick Williams (age 23) received the maximum criminal sentence according to Assistant District Attorney J. Ronald Parrish. The crimes involved the fondling of 4 and 5 year old girls who attended the day care center that was owned by Williams’ mother.
