Former Magic Valley Daycare Owner Found Guilty of Injury to a Child
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A jury found a Kimberly woman guilty of misdemeanor injury to a child after a child was found sleeping on the sidewalk outside her daycare.
On the second day of a jury trial, the jurors reached a unanimous verdict after deliberating for more than two hours. Former in-home daycare owner Brandi Olsen was found not guilty of a felony injury to a child charge, but found guilty of a misdemeanor.
Her sentencing date is slated for June 17 at 1:30 p.m.
On Aug. 2, Kimberly-Hansen police officers responded to a call at 10:30 at night about a toddler boy sleeping outside of a home with a blanket.
The boy was under the care of Sunset Child Care, which was a 24-hour, in-home day care service located on Sunset Lane.
After further investigation, Kimberly-Hansen Police said the conditions of house and the lack of supervision warranted the children to be removed.
After the incident, the state revoked Olsen's child care license
