Food service worker accused of acting inappropriately with two girls at Racine daycare
VILLAGE OF CALEDONIA- A 24-year-old food service employee from Racine has been charged with multiple crimes after he allegedly touched two 12-year-old daycare students inappropriately, and talked to them about sexual topics last Friday.
Racine County prosecutors say Leroy A. Williams touched the two girls on the butt, making them feel uncomfortable, when Williams pushed them on the swings at TLC Childcare. Additionally, prosecutors claim Williams said to one of the girls that he wanted to have sex with her, while making specific comments about sex to the other girl.
Williams allegedly told one of the girls he would hurt her if she told anyone about what he said to her.
The two girls alerted authorities about their interaction with Williams, and he was told to stay away from the children and to leave the school property immediately.
Williams has been charged with 12 criminal counts stemming from his alleged actions.
Williams' supervisor indicated that Williams was a stock worker and worked from 4:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on the date of the incident, saying he had no work-related reason to be on school property.
As of Wednesday night he was still being held at Racine County Jail on $10,000 bail, awaiting trial.
The company that employed Williams released a statement to TODAY'S TMJ4 about his arrest:
