Man charged in alleged day care molestation


Michael Oshay Hudson, 39, reportedly molested the boy at Shoelace's Learning Center, a day care facility at 5007 Higgins. The boy told authorities he was staying at the day care while his mother went to work, during June 2008. Hudson was reportedly the owner/operator of the facility at the time.

According to court documents, the boy told police that he was being punished and wasn't allowed to go outside with the other kids to play. He says he asked Hudson if he could use the computer to which Hudson reportedly replied the boy had to do something first. The boy says Hudson took him to a room with a bed and touched him sexually.

The boy told police that he told his mother about the incident at the time, but she was going through difficult time with unemployment and a potentially homeless situation and says she doesn't recall being told of the molestation. In 2012, when the boy's older brother was home from college, the boy told him of the incident at the day care.

The child identified Hudson from a police photo lineup. Hudson is charged with indecency with a child and bond has been set at $30,000 in the case.
