'Toddler Fight Club' Daycare Workers Plead Not Guilty

Two women accused of filming and encouraging a fight between toddlers at a local daycare were in court Thursday.

Two women charged with child abuse for filming and encouraging a fight at the daycare where they worked plead not guilty Thursday.

Jakitta Hollins, 22, of Caledonia, and Krystina Woods, 23, of Racine, each face a single felony count of child abuse/failure to prevent bodily harm. They were charged on May 3 and appeared in court Thursday for their preliminary hearing.

Both defendants waived their hearings, according to court records, and entered pleas of not guilty.

Racine police officers were called to Bundle of Blessings Kid Kare, 2333 Northwestern Ave., on April 26 by the daycare director for reports of child abuse. The director told investigators that a video was on social media of three children beating up another child. The ages of the children aren't known, but the victim was a 2-year-old.

The video was taken on April 13 by two teachers — Woods and Hollins — who worked in the room and did nothing to stop the attack. Police say Hollins is the mother of two of the children involved in the incident.

Both defendants remain out of jail on $10,000 signatures bonds. They are scheduled for a pre-trial conference on June 21.

Were they taking bets? All kids now need to tuffin up, due to the anti bullying BS. In my day we fought our way to school. There were no school buses or Escalades dropping us off.
