Daycare Owner Sentenced For Letting Predator Abuse, Film Kids

A Philadelphia-area woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for letting a sexual predator abuse and film children in her home day care.

Concetta Jackson, of Collingdale, is the third and final person sentenced in what a federal judge calls a "sociopathic" child-pornography case that involves more than 1 million images.

The victims ranged in age from infants to teens. A teenager who had been abused for several years tipped off authorities after watching an episode of "Law & Order" about child sexual abuse.

The chief perpetrator, John Jackey Worman, of Colwyn, is serving a life prison sentence. Co-defendant Dorothy Prawdzik, Worman's ex-girlfriend, is serving a 30-year term.

Defense lawyers say the two women feared the 42-year-old Worman.

    All I can say about this case is I hope the children will heal from this. I hope the care takers will rot. I pray for the Moms and dads who have to depend on people to take care of their children. I am married and my husband works, but when the kids were small we were poor. I didn't work, and I did suffer from lack of money but I didn't have the worry of some creeps touching my children. Parents don't think money is all there is in this world, if you don't have to work to live, then keep the kids at home until they are able to talk to you, and tell you what is going on. If you can't help but work, then try a realitive, if that can't work out , make sure you stop in that day care at all time of the day and ram through the door to see what is going on. Don't let someone do this to your kids. Pray for their safety when you are not with them. Todays world is a dangerous one, don't trust first, ask first then trust.

    Thank God the one child told someone. How sick this daycare person was to. Put the predator & all involed in this whole dirty mess away. I feel so bad for those kids. Why didn't any of the kids tell their mom & dad's? Please let your children know that NO ONE is to touch them anywhere and if they are touched to tell you right away no matter what the prdeator tells your children. My heart goes out to all the children & their families.

    I have two small children both are in a daycare and this is something that I fear everyday when I drop them off. If I could be a stay at home mom untill they start school I would, because you just never know whats going on once you leave. This is just plain sick. I dont know how anyone could hurt a child in anyway
