Longwell Lawyers has been retained by the former employee of Bright Horizons
Children’s Center to represent his interests regarding the criminal
investigation that has been initiated as a result of the recent report
of alleged abuse.
We share our community’s concern that our children must be protected
from potential abuse. However, we firmly deny that any abuse occurred
in this case. Simply put, there was no abuse involving our client.
Child care workers and educators play an important and vital role in our
community. It is unfortunate that, in addition to the many other challenges
they encounter, our child care workers and educators are vulnerable to
false allegations of abuse. When a child care worker or educator is falsely
accused of abuse it has devastating consequences.
Because of this false accusation, our client has been terminated from employment.
He is subject to a criminal investigation. He is being defamed in a civil
lawsuit and further damaged by some media that have chosen to release
his name – all based upon a false allegation without any substantiated facts.
We fought hard to have a wonderful system of justice that protects our
core values of freedom and liberty. We would ask all of the members of
our community to remember that our American values do not allow for innocent
people to have their liberty and freedom to be so easily taken away. That
is why when one of us is accused we are presumed innocent unless proven
guilty. We must presume innocence in this case because there has been
no charge, let alone proof. These rules affect us all. If we fail to respect
these fundamental principles we erode the very fabric that defines our
liberty, freedom and the very values that define us as Americans.
