Teenage Boy Allegedly Molests 3 Year-Old Girl at In-Home Daycare in Pasco County

| Jul 18, 2016 | Firm News

A 16 year-old boy from Pasco County, Florida is accused of molesting a 3 year-old girl at his mother’s daycare operated in their home. Lucius Isaiah Gibson, who goes by Isaiah, allegedly inserted his penis into the mouth of the child during nap time at his mother’s daycare, Thomas Gibson Family Day Care.

According to police, the incident took place during nap time, a time when the children were unsupervised. The 3 year-old victim told her parents about what happened.  Investigators believe that four other children, both boys and girls, may have been molested by Gibson. In addition to charging Gibson sexual battery, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office is considering filing child neglect charges against Gibson’s mother and her employees.

In 2013, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office investigated similar allegations of “inappropriate touching” of a young child by Gibson.  Detectives at the time did not feel they had enough evidence to arrest Gibson, nor did the parents of the child decide to press charges.

According to police, Gibson admitted unintentionally exposing himself in front of the children but denied all other allegations.  The daycare’s operation have been suspended for 90 days pending further investigation.
