Lake Charles childcare provider under investigation

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A Lake Charles woman accused of operating a daycare without a license is under investigation by the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

DCFS filed a petition for a permanent injunction against Glenn and Rose Richard for operating Mo Mo's Home Care without a license.

DCFS authorities said they found a number of children in the home when they visited several times.

Rose denied the accusations and told 7 News that most of the children are related to her, but DCFS could not confirm these claims.

Rose also revealed that DCFS started its investigation after a complaint regarding her husband Glenn Richard.

Glenn Richard was charged with sexual battery.

"It was very upsetting for me to know that this had happened to this young girl which I was taking care of all of her life," Rose Richard said.

Glenn Richard is in jail with a $500,000 bond.

The injunction is a pending action by Judge Wilford Carter.
