ALLENTOWN, Pa. – A Pennsylvania day care worker is facing criminal charges after authorities say she coaxed 3- and 4-year-old children to use obscenities and took videos of them doing it.
Twenty-four-year-old Rashanna Gyles, of Allentown, was charged Thursday with a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors.
Gyles was a bus monitor at Creative Minds Daycare Academy in Allentown. Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin says she had a half-dozen children direct obscenities toward another child. Authorities say she made videos of them and sent one to a friend, who called police.
The video wound up on Facebook, and has been viewed nearly 170,000 times.
A phone number could not be located for Gyles. Court records say she'll be assigned a public defender.
State regulators have revoked the day care's license.
