2 former Southampton day care workers cleared of abuse charges

Two former Southampton day care workers have been acquitted of child abuse charges.



A judge handed down a written decision Wednesday, exonerating Kathleen Culver and Sarah Dawber.



The women were accused in 2015 of force-feeding, pushing and knocking children down at the Side by Side Day Care Center.



The day care closed after the allegations were made public.
