Randy, do you know anything about why the owner and director of stone village children's center (Montessori preschool and early head start provider) was arrested at the center in front of the kids last week? She's still in business posting pics of kids and activities on stone village childrens centers page on facebook. She was assigned a public defender named Jared Stilley. Her name is LeAnna Williams.
