Day Care Worker Charged with Sexual Assault of Child

By Rachel E. Montes posted in Daycare Laws on Monday, May 25, 2009

Garland police have charge Cesar Najera-Zayala (55) with sexual assault of a girl under the age of 10 at the day care facility where Mr. Najera-Zayala worked. Najera-Zavala goes by “pastor” and is the director of the Amiel Christian School. “He’s the one that oversees the entire ministry,” said Adrian Najera, his son. While Garland Police have indicated that they are investigating the possibility of more victims, Mr. Najera has denied that the incident occurred and issued a statement, “We’re in the last two weeks of school, and this specific parent that came up with these accusations has a pretty outstanding balance with the school,” CBS 11 News is reporting that it has learned the Garland daycare center has been operating illegally and has been ordered to shut down.

At Montes Law Group, PLC we understand that parents place a high level of trust in day care centers to protect their children. There are several Texas laws that are in place that are designed to protect children and to ensure that day care facilities are operated in a manner that reduces the risk that children will be victimized. These laws require that day care centers must be properly licensed, staffed and operated in a safe manner. In addition, day care facilities have a duty to conduct an investigation into the background of workers to make sure that they do not pose a risk of harm to the children. If you are concerned that your child has been physically or sexually assaulted by a day care worker or seriously injured while at a day care facility, you need to take immediate action to protect your child. Report the incident to the police immediately. Then, contact us.
