Nanny Cam Caregiver Arrested

Nanny Cam Caregiver Arrested!

About a month ago, we did a post about a Sugar staffer's friend who caught incriminating footage of her nanny on a hidden camera. In it, the twin babes had been manhandled, left in extremely unsafe positions and put at high risk for injuries. If you missed it, you can view the video above. Thankfully, the boys were not injured.

Today, an MSNBC article reported that the 26-year-old caretaker has been charged with two counts of child abuse. It said:

The charges are class 1 misdemeanors and each has a maximum penalty of 120 days in jail.

Do you think justice is being served?

My stomache even aches right now. I got that horrible pit feeling. I'm just shocked and almost want to cry. I actually thought the one baby was a doll I until I realized it was twins. OMG OMG. I agree with the above poster. Iw ould have gone crazy on that nanny.

I am sick right now. I had my hand over my mouth the entire time in shock. I could not believe what I was watching. I gasped and unconsciously reached out every time one of those babies moved on the sofa unattended or when she grabbed the one by the arm. Like another post said, I think if I was the mother, I would be in jail for assault charges - I'm not sure that I could contain myself. I want to smack her now and they're not my kids! I hope she is convicted and receives the maximum sentence but I don't think it's enough. People like this think it's not abuse because they're not hitting the kids or beating them but abuse comes in many forms and this is definitely one of them. I am glad that the mother followed her instinct and took quick action.

That was awful. I couldn't imagine as a parent watching a video of my children being treated like that, especially such a tiny baby. I would be out of control. Just wondering, but is there a reason she's walking around in what I'm assuming is the parents house in a towel? Where did he clothes go?

OMG!!!!! That was scarier than Silence of the Lambs (the scariest movie I have ever seen). What was she doing?!?!?!?!

120 days????????? WTF?? Even if she is serving 120 days for each count then its still less than a year. That woman deserves to be in there much longer and to never be able to be in that sort of position again!

i just gave my daughter a big kiss and hug after watching that video and thanked God for getting to stay home with her

120 days is ridiculous. She deserves a much stiffer punishment. I'm so outraged, I'm speechless.

I think this is awful and the fact that the max penalty in that state for two counts of child abuse seems like such a light sentence. At least this woman will never be able to go near that child again and I can't imagine can ever practice child care again (I know at least in my state any child abuse convictions means you can't work in any kind of health care positions, and I assume anything else involving direct care of people especially children), but if she was the mother of those children? The kids would bounce around the system for a while and be back with her. The sentences need to be more punitive, but I have a feeling if they were the child welfare system would end up costing the taxpayers oodles more money because they'd have so many more cases.

They should show this video to her cell block buddies before she goes in and then the guards should have to give them all some private "bonding" time with her. I bet any mother serving time would be manhandling her!

This is very disturbing!!!!!! How can someone just do that!?! She needs to be put in jail for MUCH longer and beat up a bit.

i dont even know what to say.... she would need to be put into jail just to avoid what i'd do to her if i were those little beautiful babies mom

This video makes me irrate! She should have definitely received a harsher penalty and I pray that she is banned from caring for children in the future.

I just picked my jaw up from the floor. I literally jumped and screamed when I saw this video! Even if this woman get sthe maximum sentence - it is still not enough. She should have to wear a sign in public saying - I was caught mistreating children on a nanny cam and then let the public deal with her.

And I hope she never, ever finds work as a nanny again.

OMG! I'm speachless. She should have received much more, is all I can say.

She has only been arrested. She hasn't been tried or convicted yet. The sentence noted above is the recommended maximum. I hope she is convicted and receives the max. Justice has not been served yet.

The report the nanny was watching about great babysitters being hard to find makes the whole situation all the more ironic. I agree with Critty's comment as well - what was the judge thinking when he sentenced this mentally unstable woman? Endangering two children's lives deserves much more than a flimsy sentence of 120 days in jail.
