Galveston County Daily News Features BLF Client's Daycare Abuse LawsuitSAN ANGELO, Texas - Recently featured on The Galveston County Daily News, The Button Law Firm has emerged as a beacon of hope for parents seeking justice in the wake of a disturbing incident at Trinity Lutheran School. Patrick and Melissa Killingsworth, parents from San Angelo, are courageously stepping forward to hold the private institution accountable for the mistreatment of their 4-year-old daughter by a teacher in March 2021.

What Happened at This San Angelo, Texas Daycare?

The article from The Galveston County Daily News shares the disturbing details of the incident, as outlined in the lawsuit filed by the parents. According to their complaint, the daycare teacher subjected their daughter to egregious verbal and physical abuse, all captured on classroom surveillance cameras. Shockingly, the footage reveals the teacher used even more improper punishments by berating and threatening the young child with incarceration and isolation in a dark closet. According to the article, the traumatic ordeal has left a lasting mark on the child, prompting her parents to take decisive legal action against the school.

Troubling Information About Daycare Administration Negligence

The story doesn't end there. The article from the Galveston publication shares that the lawsuit unveils a troubling pattern of administrative negligence at Trinity Lutheran School. Despite prior incidents and indications of the teacher's mental health battles, the school failed to provide the necessary support or intervention. Instead of addressing the situation head-on, the administration insisted that the teacher continue working, exposing the children under her care to further harm.

"The appalling actions of a teacher terrorizing a preschooler, and the administrative decisions at Trinity Lutheran School that enabled this to happen, are deeply disturbing," commented Russell Button, one of the Killingsworths' attorneys at The Button Law Firm. "We aim to hold those responsible at this school for the lack of care and unnecessary trauma experienced by our client's young daughter while under their watch."

The article shares that in response to the gravity of the situation, state authorities have intervened, citing Trinity Lutheran School for multiple childcare law violations. This has prompted corrective action from the licensing department, signaling a glimmer of hope for accountability and reform within the institution.
