TROY — A newly uncovered inspection report shows JJJ Childcare had multiple non-compliance violations during an unannounced inspection conducted the day the owner’s son was arrested for gross sexual imposition following allegations involving a child at the care center.
Andrew T. Cain, 35, was charged on July 29 and was released from jail after posting bond the next day.
Cain worked at the facility as a bus driver, maintenance person and an assistant.
Court documents show a 10-year-old girl told police that Cain “touched me in my privates” while she was sitting on his lap during free play at the childcare facility.
The incident was reported on July 19 and reportedly happened on July 10.
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.
