CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - An Alcorn County child care center has reopened after regulators ruled there wasn’t enough evidence to hold a hearing on revoking its license.

Circle Y Child Care Center had its license suspended on March 16 by the state Health Department, amid allegations that at least six children were sexually or physically abused.

Health Department spokeswoman Liz Sharlot tells the Daily Corinthian (https://bit.ly/1qAmNEj) that the department must hold a hearing after 14 days of suspension, but found too little evidence to proceed. The center reopened March 31.

Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell is still investigating, but no one has been charged.

Sharlot says because Circle Y is housed in the same building as Genesis Christian Academy, state officials told operators they must keep children in the child care center separated.
