Did you hear the one about the sex offender’s wife who provides daycare in Perham, MN?
How do you think that turned out?
In case you couldn’t guess, not well.
Backing up, the dude commited a sex crime and went to jail.
He failed to register as a sex offender after being released and was sent back to jail.
So now he found him self back out of jail for the 2nd time. And where does he hang out? With his wife while she provided in-home daycare.
And guess who’s back in jail after allegedly spending some alone time with one of his wife’s daycare clients who’s under the age of 13?
Formulaic stuff here.
This dude obviously has problems. But what’s up with his wife? Correct me if I’m wrong, but shouldn’t daycare providers avoid having sex offenders hanging around their work? I don’t care if he is your husband, mam. That doesn’t fly.
The article mentions that there was no requirement regarding public notification of his sex offender status since he wasn’t a level 3 offender. However, based on the article, this doesn’t sound like a failure of disclosure but a failure of professional responsibility by a daycare provider that was clearly aware of the sex offender’s past.
I’m blaming the woman.
