MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. (AP) - A New York day care owner accused of inadequately supervising children has been acquitted of child endangerment charges.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (https://bit.ly/2dFHXO9 ) a judge acquitted Kesha Perry on Wednesday of eight counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Authorities say that a boy had inappropriately touched three younger girls. All of the children were related and none of the claims involved kids from day care. She faced charges she failed to adequately supervise the children.

But Perry maintained that the claims started with another relative who coached one of the children because of a custody battle, and the child quickly recanted the story.

The state suspended her day care license because of the charges. She says she’s optimistic the state will restore it.
