BOSTON (AP) - The parents of four children who attended a day care center at Bridgewater State University where a former worker has been charged with sexually abusing two boys have sued to obtain college records.

Their lawyer said Monday the goal of the suit is to find out whether university officials sought to cover up abuse complaints.

Attorney Carmen Durso said the parents want to find out whether the university should have intervened earlier to protect children in its care. The parents say their children exhibited concerning behavior.

A former Bridgewater State student from Wrentham has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting two boys, ages 4 and 5, in March. The day care’s director was fired for allegedly not notifying authorities of possible abuse in a timely manner.

A university spokeswoman refused comment.
