A day care worker who let two toddlers wander into a street was sentenced Nov. 13 to 12 months of probation.
Bisharo Mohamed, 26, of Aurora, pleaded guilty Oct. 23 to negligent child abuse, a Class 3 misdemeanor.
On May 15, 2017, Mohamed was working at Rising Stars Day Care on Cornell Avenue in Aurora.
The father of a toddler attending the day care was on his way to pick up his son when he saw the boy and another toddler walking on Cornell Avenue. He stopped and put the two toddlers in his car.
An investigation by Aurora Police determined Mohamed was supposed to be supervising the two toddlers when they were found in the street.
Mohamed had no prior criminal convictions. As part of her plea agreement, she will take a parenting class and perform 30 hours of community service. Her conviction ensures she will not be able to work at any licensed child care facility.
“This person should not be entrusted with the care of other people’s children in a daycare,” said District Attorney George Brauchler, “and this outcome ensures that she won’t.”
