HOBOKEN, N.J. -- A former New Jersey day care worker has been indicted on charges of child abuse after she, along with four other employees, were caught on camera aggressively handling toddlers at the school in May.
Kelli Dugan, 31, formerly of Guttenberg, N.J., was indicted on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and child abuse, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Officer announced Friday.
Dugan was a teacher at Apple Montessori School in Hoboken, where the incident was captured on video.
The video, posted on Facebook, shows one of the workers forcing a 23-month-old to the ground to put a hat on the child, NJ.com reports. She then repeatedly tried to lift her before leaving her on the ground.
Five employees were terminated as a result of the mistreatment. No one else has been identified.
