EVERETT, Wash. -- A teenager accused of sexually assaulting three children at his mother’s Marysville daycare made his first court appearance on Wednesday.
Marysville police accuse 18-year-old Dakota Wilson of molesting two girls and raping one other. All the alleged victims are 5 to 10 years old.
Wilson pleaded “not guilty” to the charges at his arraignment in Snohomish County Superior Court.
Snohomish County prosecutor Matt Hunter made an unusual request as he asked the judge not to allow Wilson near any children unsupervised. He asked that Wilson’s mother, Anne Ladale Moore, not be allowed to chaperone her son.
That’s because records show that Wilson has faced allegations that he’s been abusing children in his mother’s daycare at least twice before.
Records from the State of Idaho obtained by the KING 5 Investigators show Wilson was first accused in 2001 of inappropriate sexual contact with a child and again in 2004.
Neither case resulted in criminal charges, but Moore agreed with licensors that she would keep her son away from the children in the daycare.
The WA Department of Early learning says it did not receive this reports from Idaho when it conducted a background check on her prior to giving her daycare a license.
A previous KING 5 Investigation showed that Moore earned $232,000 in public money from a state program that pays for daycare so that low-income parents can go to work.
Moore was the top earner among home daycares in the state.
