Judge denies separate trials, Del. daycare worker allegedly abused children
DOVER, Del. (AP) – A judge in Delaware denied a request to hold multiple trials for a former Telamon Head Start program aide facing child sex abuse charges.
Timothy McCrary is charged with two counts of sexual abuse of a child by a person of trust involving one alleged victim. The 28-year old is also charged with two counts of unlawful sexual contact involving each of three other alleged victims.
McCrary’s attorney has argued that joining the cases in one trial would prejudice him before the jury. The judge ruled Tuesday that there are enough similarities between the cases to reasonably conclude that the alleged conduct was part of “a common plan.”
He was arrested in June of 2019 after an almost month long investigation into allegations of abuse.
