Child care worker accused of raping boy - Texas

Blogger note:

Just because a daycare is registered somewhere or licensed by the state should not make you feel all that safe. We know a registered day care that has a 2ce convicted felon running it. How does that happen? The felony background check only goes back 5 years in the situation we are talking about. The felonies of this daycare provider ocurred in the 1970's and 1980's. We also know of state run daycare centers that have had many violations, some of which were harm inflicted on our family members while in their care. Foster children who go to the state licensed daycares are subjected to horrendous abuse and no one does anything about it. So be careful! Know your daycare provider and know them well.

Police arrested a child-care worker accused of repeatedly raping and threatening an 11-year-old boy.

Bradley Bendele, 32, was arrested Friday night and charged with continuous sexual abuse of a young child, a first-degree felony.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Bendele raped the boy while he cared for him.

Bendele runs a child-care business, authorities said, though it does not appear to be licensed through the state's Department of Family and Protective Services.

The boy told police Bendele threatened several times to kill him and his family if he reported the attacks, according to the affidavit.

Bendele remained at Bexar County Jail on Saturday afternoon in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Child Protective Services spokeswoman Mary Walker said the Child Care Licensing division of the state's Department of Family and Protective Services is investigating the suspect's business as a potential illegal operation.

“It's so important for folks to go online and check out day care facilities and make sure they're registered and licensed by the state,” Walker said. “It's important for parents to know who they are leaving their children with.”
