A day care center has been shut down and its owner arrested in Omaha, Nebraska. Sandra Johnson, also known as Sandra Minor, was arrested for felony child abuse. An emergency order was issued to Johnson (Minor), which immediately suspended her license as a child care provider and, ultimately, shut down her day care center. The emergency order was issued after police were called to Creighton University Medical Center. After the officers arrived, hospital staff advised them that an 11-month-old was being treated for a broken arm. Police then talked with the child’s mother who told police that she believed the incident could have happened at her child’s day care center.
Emergency orders are issued in the state of Nebraska when necessary to protect the immediate physical well-being and safety of a child in a child care program. If you would like to read more on this story please see Emergency order issued to day care owner in Omaha, Nebraska; center shuts down.
Johnson will be entitled to an attorney to defend the charges pressed against her. Regardless of this day care provider’s culpability, violence against a child is a heinous crime. Physical violence against a child can inflict personal injuries, sometimes permanent. Children should be handled with patience and care.
