- Kentucky transgender daycare worker Maria Childers is accused of sexually abusing a baby while changing the child’s diaper, according to official documents obtained by WSPD Local 6.
- The Paducah Police Department got a complaint of the alleged abuse on February 8 from the Kentucky Department for Community Based Services after an anonymous tip came in about trans-identified male Childers, 25, who was employed at the Explore Learning Academy in November when the crime allegedly took place.
- Childers, who identifies as a transgender woman, was arrested the same day as police investigated the center and initially denied touching the baby’s diaper in an interview. However, Childers switched the story after the investigator read a text the daycare worker sent to the director confirming the diaper change.
- According to the outlet, Childers was hit with a charge of first-degree sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 12, and is incarcerated in the McCracken County Jail with a $100,000 bond. As the publication reports, the official sex listed on the jail’s inmate roster is “male.”
