Omaha Day Care Owner Fined In Abuse Case

(A-P)

An Omaha day care owner accused of failing to report child abuse has been fined $500.   39 year-old Jennifer Schmaderer, owner of Grow with Me Day Care, was sentenced on Thursday. She pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charge.

Authorities say Schmaderer didn't report the 2012 actions of Sarah Cullen, a former employee at the day care.

A report by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services says Schmaderer was told by other employees of four incidents in which Cullen was rough with children. Schmaderer's attorney says her client misunderstood the law about reporting such incidents

In March Cullen was found guilty of child abuse resulting in death. A child under her care as a nanny in late February 2013 died after suffering a fractured skull and massive bleeding.
