Ludlow, KY (The Weekly Vice) - Alicia Lyons, a 20-year-old Kentucky daycare worker, was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly duct-taped a toddler to a mat so he wouldn't move during nap time.
According to police, an investigation was launched after a mother complained to police that her 18-month-old son had been duct taped to a sleeping mat during nap time.
Investigators say Lyons, an employee of Mustard Seeds Daycare, was observed duct-taping the child by another employee. The employee then waited several months before informing the child's mother about the incident.
During questioning, Lyons initially denied the allegations, but later admitted to duct-taping the toddler. She told investigators that she taped the child to the mat in an effort to get him to calm down and sleep.
Lyons was booked into the Kenton County Jail and charged with first-degree criminal abuse. She was released after posting a $2,500 bond.
Lyons' employment at the daycare has since been terminated.
