According to Okaloosa County arrest records, Curtis has been charged with four counts of neglect of a child with great bodily harm. As of April 17, 2022, three years after her arrest, Okaloosa County arrest records say the charges have been disposed of. However, why they were disposed of is not immediately clear.
Charges can be disposed of for various reasons, including “dismissal, conviction, admission of guilt,” and more. Her bond was set at $4,000. She was released from jail on July 21, 2019.
According to a 2019 report from CBS Miami, Curtis is accused of being the reason why four children under her care suffered broken legs, all in the same week. Surveillance video from May 21, 2019, shows Curtis dropping an 18-month-old boy feet first into a wagon, WEAR reports.
The boy could later be seen having trouble standing and walking. All four of the young boys that were injured were fine before being dropped off at the Kids Discovery Learning Center in Valparaiso.
The arrest record, obtained by WEAR, states that all four of the boys were able to stand and walk prior to the injuries. They were unable to do either after arriving at the daycare.
The children were between the ages of 13 months old and 21 months old. It’s unclear whether or not the three other children’s injuries were caught on camera.

However, investigators have determined that their injuries were likely sustained while in Curtis’s care. The latest reports states investigators were still trying to determine if the injuries were intentionally inflicted.
Curtis had previously pled not guilty and denied knowing how the injuries could have occurred. She claimed it is possible the children sustained the injuries at home or while at the playground. Curtis claimed seeing several students falling off of equipment.
After she was released, Curtis was instructed to not have any unsupervised contact with any children and is forbidden from working at childcare facilities or schools.
