Nanny Cam Catches Alleged Babysitter Abuse On Tape

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A mother who ran a babysitting service out of her home was behind bars Friday, charged with child abuse.

Gianna Cochran was charged with felonies involving sexual and physical abuse of children between the ages of 8 months and 2-years-old, 10TV's Kevin Landers reported.

Police said the alleged crimes happened in an apartment last year and involved at least five children.

A parent of an alleged victim suspected something was wrong with his daughter and helped alert police, Landers reported.

"I kept telling my fianc that was something wrong because (my daughter) always come home crying you know, every time we left there she would ball," said the parent, who requested anonymity.

The parent said that it started when the girl's mother raised questions to the babysitter about their daughter's face.

"She saw blotchiness, red on her face and neck," the parent said. "And she wanted to know what's going on and she said she was just crying."

Their suspicions of alleged abuse were verified months later, when police knocked on their door with a video," Landers reported.

You might have heard about the nanny cam which is one of the ways to protect your babies from any kind of abuse. It is quite difficult to trust a person these days. So how can you trust the nanny and give her the responsibility to take care of your baby.

You might want to try out GotoCamera's free webcam software. GotoCamera is EASY to set up and easy to use. All you need is a webcam (a USB webcam such as those made by Logitech, Creative, etc, or even the webcam integrated into your netbook / notebook) and a Windows PC, and you’re ready to start. Once your camera is set up, you can turn on recording schedules, configure motion detection, share your camera with family, and access it from any browser, including your iPhone, so that you can remotely monitor your camera's recordings. You can watch over your children any time you wish. This is perfect for people who can't afford a nanny to watch over their kids when they're away from home. At less than $4 a month, it makes complete sense to me. Give it a shot, try their 1 week free trial and let me know how it goes :)
