Indiana Daycare Owner Charged With Neglect After Drugging Children
Update to our recent blog post concerning the arrest of a daycare owner
An Indianapolis woman is being formally charged with six counts of neglect after confessing to drugging children in her home-run daycare center. Stephanie Gribble, the owner of “Stay and Play” daycare had four children removed from her care on February 12th after authorities suspected they had suffered brain injuries. Their symptoms included drooling, drowsiness, tongue hanging out, drooping heads and clenched fists, as well as unconsciousness. The children were given immediate medical attention, and further tests revealed the drug Risperidone in their systems.
According to WTHR 13, Risperidone is a complex drug that requires administration by a doctor, and should never be given by someone who is not qualified to administer drugs.
The children ranged in ages from 11 months to 5-years of age, but no updates have been given on their condition. More reports continue to come in as Gribble faces class D felony charges and parents of other children continue to press charges against her for the neglectful and harmful care of their children.
