SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - An 18-year-old
accused of sexually assaulting two girls at his father's day care is currently in jail without bond, according to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
At least eight children attended the in-home daycare on Tulane Drive in Altamonte Springs.
The Seminole County Sheriff's Office contacted the Department of Children and Families.
DCF temporarily shut the
day care down on Tuesday. For the next three months, the business will be closed until officials get to the bottom of the allegations.
Detectives said Geiersbach threatened the girls if they told anyone, but according to an arrest report, one of the victims
told Geiersbach's mother, who told her son to cut it out, according to investigators.
Detectives said they did not find out about the allegations until a week
later, when the victims told their parents.
On Tuesday afternoon, a judge denied Geiersbach's bond and appointed him a public defender.
Conan Martin is a friend of Geiersbach's and he said he doesn't think the
suspect is capable of doing the things he's accused of.
"He is a very nice young
man, intelligent. I mean, I don't know what's going on. It's surprising to me," said Martin.
WFTV found out their
day care was registered, not licensed, which means it had less regulation.
DCF officials said Geiersbach, his sister and his parents were all screened to live in the home
day care long before the abuse started.
The house only had one licensing complaint in 2009.
Geiersbach is facing up to life in prison.
