NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. - A New Rochelle daycare worker has pleaded guilty to molesting a child in his care at a Tuckahoe facility where he was employed late last year.
On Tuesday, acting Westchester County District Attorney James McCarty announced that Isaac McKnight, 24, has pleaded guilty to a charge of committing a first-degree criminal sexual act - which is classified as a violent felony - for his role in assaulting a 4-year-old child last year.
On Nov. 5 last year, while working at a part time employee at the Andrus Learning Center in Tuckahoe, McKnight sexually assaulted the 4-year-old, inappropriately touching the child while at the daycare facility. McKnight had only been employed at Andrus for eight days before the incident.
Once they were alerted, the Andrus staff quickly told police, and a multi-agency investigation was opened.
A week into the joint investigation by the Tuckahoe Police Department and Westchester County District Attorney’s office, McKnight was arrested and arraigned on the charges.
McKnight has been remanded to the Westchester County Jail and is due to be sentenced on Tuesday, April 26.
