COLUMBUS, Ohio – A day care owner convicted of abusing children will spend 30 days in jail.
Kimberly Hignite was operating an unlicensed day care in her Grove City home.
When the Sheriff’s Office searched the home in May 2018, they say they found 24 children with one adult: Hignite’s 71-year-old mother.
They say many of the children, between 7 months and 5 years old, were strapped into car seats, left unattended in separate rooms.
Monday in court the mothers of five of those children stood to face Hignite and tell her how her crimes impacted their children.
