This is one of those stories that is so shocking and sad that it makes me emotional. A daycare worker in Ohio is accused of molesting babies and in at least one case, she filmed the assault.

THE ALLEGATIONS

Heather Koon, 25, is charged with two counts of rape after detectives found video on her laptop of her “engaging in sexual conduct with an infant.” Koon lives with her boyfriend James Osborne, a registered sex offender.

COURT PROCEEDING

At her arraignment Monday, prosecutors said that the state has “very strong evidence” against Koon. Her victims were between the ages of 1 and 2 years old. She’s being held on a $2 million bond.

WKYC reported that both sexual assaults took place at ABC Kidz child care in Elyria, Ohio.

Other parents are now coming forward concerned their children may also be victims.  Andrea Lankey, whose 2-year-old was under Koon’s care, was one of those parents. “[My son] doesn’t like his diaper being changed. He doesn’t like being touched. When I used to drop him off there he used to scream so bad that he would be like hyperventilating,” she said.

RESPONSE FROM DAY CARE

Carlos Johnson, the attorney for ABC Kidz, said the company does not believe there were other victims:

“The daycare in cooperating with the investigation and we’re compiling a list to determine which kids were present while she, Heather Koon, worked there. We do not think there are more victims, but out of the abundance of cautiousness we want to make sure that we are correct.”
