Louisville Daycare Owner Facing Charges

A Louisville daycare owner is in trouble with police after dozens of kids are found by themselves.

Alesha Watts faces 13 counts of endagering the welfare of a minor.

The landlord of the building that houses the daycare says he found 13 kids alone at the center when he stopped by Tuesday morning, and immediately called police.

We're told the kids range in age from two to ten.

Authorities say Watts returned to the daycare around noon.

    It's stuff just like this that caused me to retire early to stay at home with my two children. You cannot trust anyone, liscensed or not!! The state really doesn't care about our children...they only care about themselves!

    Wow, was this lady actually licensed to care for these kids and where was the help. i know she couldn't have 13 kids by herself even if she was liscensed. Wake up people, wastch who you leave ya babies with. And Please don't come on here saying she was just across the hall for someting....you NEVER leave any child unattended, especially someone else's!
