Collin County grand jury indicts former McKinney day care worker on eight counts of child abuse

Jessica Joy Wiese is still in Collin county Jail.

MCKINNEY, Texas — A Collin County grand jury indicted Jessica Joy Wiese, a former daycare worker in McKinney, on eight counts of injury to a child Friday.

Wiese, 44, remains in Collin County Jail, and has bee since December of 2018.

She was originally charged with bodily injury to a child after Ariel Martin became suspicious about bruises on her 2-month old son's leg and left chest area. When she questioned the staff at Joyous Montessori in McKinney, she was told the leg bruise might be a birthmark. Later she says she was told it was the result of a rough diaper change. But a trip to the hospital found much more: eight broken aribs and a broken femur.

Another family spoke out against the daycare in December, stating they pulled their 2-year-old daughter out of Joyous Montessori after noticing their daughter would sometimes come home with bruises on her body and scratches on her face.

Concerned parents of children who have attended Joyous Montessori are asked to call McKinney police at (972) 547-2710.
