MOUNT MORRIS – A deranged former employee of Care-a-Lot Daycare pled guilty at her first court appearance Tuesday morning to vile sexual acts against a 3-year-old infant which were video recorded on her phone and obtained by the Mount Morris Police Department in October 2014.
Twisted Tania Wing, 34, represented by attorney Steven Sessler, pled guilty at her first court appearance to Sex Abuse in the First Degree, the top count of an indictment that also charged Promotion of a Sexual Performance by a Child, Possession of a Sexual Performance by a Child, Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance, and two counts of Unlawful Surveillance.
Wing accepted the offer from Assistant District Attorney Josh Tonra with the Livingston County District Attorney’s Office of 4 years in state prison with 10 years post-release supervision, with registration under the Sex Offender Registration Act, and is set to be sentenced in June.
Wing was immediately terminated from her position as Kitchen Manager at Care-a-Lot when the allegations first came to light.
She was originally arrested for Aggravated Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree, a C felony, and Unlawful Surveillance in the Second Degree, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child, an A misdemeanor, but the DA’s Office modified the charges to include Sex Abuse in the First Degree, a D felony, as the case progressed.
In October 2014, the Mount Morris Police Department and Livingston County Child Protective Services investigated allegations of unlawful surveillance of two 15-year-old females. At that time, Mount Morris Police were unable to prove the allegations and enlisted the help of the New York State Police Computer Crime Unit. Two cell phones belonging to the suspect were seized for examination, and Wing was arrested at that time for Sexual Misconduct.
Mount Morris Police Chief Ken Mignemi, with Officer Jeremy Blair, and Officer Melody Moore, all assisted in the original investigation and arrest.
