DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Kathryn Muhammad, owner of Katie's Kids Learning Center in Delray Beach does not plan on fighting the county's charges against her.
At 8:30a.m. on Thursday, Muhammad will go before the county's Envinromental Control Hearing Board, the agency that fines daycares.
Muhammad is facing four violations for the death of 2 1/2 year old Haile Brockington. Those violations include leaving a child unattended, not filling out transportation logs properly and failing to make sure all children got off the van.
Back in August, daycare workers found Haile Brockington's body after she was forgotten about in the backseat of one of the center vans.
According to her attorney, Betty Resch, Muhammad will make a statement to the board and is prepared to pay the fines, that can be up to $2000.
Muhammad maintains the incident was not the result of bad
procedures, but bad judgement by a few employees.
