Male Nanny Charged With Molesting Boy: More Victims?

Vermont State Police say a nanny charged with molesting a boy, age 10, may have other victims elsewhere.

Vermont State Police Detective Ben Katz says the case is complex because 23-year-old Donald Shepherd traveled around the country and went by several aliases. He says Shepherd sought work as a nanny and at camps in 13 other states.

Shepherd looked for his nanny jobs online. Vermont investigators are working with other law enforcement agencies and have been contacted by several nanny-networking sites.

Katz says Shepherd may have sought work in California, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York City, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Washington state and Washington, D.C.

    What a sick individual! Maybe I am old fashioned, maybe I use caution when deciding who keeps my children, so I will say this. If a grown man comes to my house looking for work it better be to cut the grass or paint the house! At 23 years old and having travelled the country looking for work he could not possibly have had a stable work history to show anyone! That alone would raise some red flags and automatically kick him out of the list of prospective "nanny" applicants. I am not sure I would even hire the pope to work in my home as a nanny! I find the fact that he was a male caution enough to think "what would a grown man want to be around my children for?" They should execute him on the spot! After he makes a few "friends" in prison, he will wish for the same thing!
