According to FOX Oxon Hill daycare worker remains behind bars Monday after appearing in court on charges related to filming herself abusing toddlers.
Kayla Greenwell, 23, was clad in an orange jumpsuit appearing via Zoom for her court hearing Monday. She’s facing two felony counts of child abuse and two misdemeanors for second-degree assault.
The default rule is freedom before trial unless you’re a threat to public safety or a flight risk.
Prince George’s County Judge Clayton Aarons ordered that she remain in jail, calling her actions “extremely serious” – not only that the assault took place but that she taped it, knowing what she did was wrong, and sent it to others.
“In this case, we have to look at protecting the public,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy told FOX 5. “We have someone who was alleged to have abused defenseless children. That really shows a callous disregard for humanity, and so we were very concerned about her engaging with the general public.”
Silence so far from the Oxon Hill Center for Early Learning.
