Student charged with sexual abuse waives court date
BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — A Bridgewater State University student charged with sexually abusing two young boys at the campus child care center returns to court in June after his attorney waived a dangerousness hearing Monday.
Twenty-one-year-old Kyle Loughlin has been held without bail since pleading not guilty earlier this month to rape of a child and aggravated indecent assault and battery on a child. Police say the alleged victims are 4 and 5 years old.
Loughlin was one of several students who worked at the university’s day care center.
The center’s former director is facing charges for allegedly failing to report abuse allegations.
The center reopened Monday with an interim director. Officials said surveillance cameras are being installed, and renovations will make the space more open. Students won’t be working there while policies are reviewed, and staff members are being retrained.
