I have to wonder why parents would continue to take their children there after they became aware of the problems. I can also see a problem with the report made by Randy Eichholz from a visit he made in June 2012. Did he go there on the 25th or 26th of June, just what a defense attorney will want to know. It is not my place to determine guilt but when it comes to investigations and evidence, accuracy is a must and if previous reports had questionable dates/facts, I can see why the prosecutor has not already had her in court.

After reviewing the documents, I don't see any date conflicts. There was a written complaint made that the state health department received on June 25th. Randy Eichholz then began the investigation into the complaint by visiting on June 26th and continued the investigation with additional activities on June 27th. I feel that the state health department should be commended for acting so quickly once the complaint was made. For all the complaining about state workers, this documentation proves just how quickly and caringly the state workers act to protect all of us. As a society we should be demanding prosecution for the illegal daycare operation alone...and I agree with you that I too wonder why parents continue to take their children to this person. I also wonder if the parents were even aware of some of the history of this person. It appears that there was a high turnover of clients. Did the new parents have any access to the history of this illegal operation? Or have we allowed our laws to protect the criminals rights instead of the safety of the innocents?
