A now-unemployed Kentucky transgender daycare worker who calls himself Maria Childers, 25, was arrested for molesting an infant and making inappropriate comments as he changed the child's diaper. It is not immediately clear what those "inappropriate comments" were.
The alleged crime took place last November, but Childers wasn't arrested until Feb. 2023.
Paducah police paid a visit to the Explore Learning Academy daycare center after it received an anonymous tip alleging Childers' revolting actions. Officers met with another employer, who corroborated the gruesome details of the accusations against Childers.
Police interviewed Childers at Paducah Police station, where he initially denied even changing the child's diaper, much less molesting the infant and making "inappropriate statements." But he changed his tune when cops read a text Childers sent to the facility's director admitting that he did, in fact, change the toddler's diaper.
