California, Abusive Swaddling cause for two arrests for child abuse and neglect | Child Abuse Attorney

The Livermore police reportedly began to investigate two daycare workers, whom are also sisters, at  Universal Preschool LLC when a former employee of the daycare quit. The former employee reportedly told the authorities how she had seen children being “restrained improperly.”

Two sisters Nazila and Lida Sharaf, have reportedly been charged with several counts of child neglect and abuse in California according to an article posted by Examiner.  The report also states, the two sisters were charged with child abuse and neglect for abusive swaddling, reportedly swaddling some seven children so tight the could not breathe. Nazila Sharaf was the licensee of the daycare and Lida Sharaf was the director.

Throughout the investigation sadly, police learned the sister swaddled three boys and four girls reportedly between the ages of seven to eleven months of age.  Sadly the sisters reportedly knew the babies suffered from upper-respiratory conditions, and that did not stop them from the inexcusable abusive swaddling.  

The two sisters are reportedly each being held on $700,00 bail and  have been charged with three counts of felony neglect and abuse as well as four counts of misdemeanor child neglect and abuse.
