No-bill in Willow Park day care duct tape case

The well-publicized case involving a duct-taping incident at a Willow Park day care is over, at least in the eyes of the courts.

A Parker County Grand Jury decided yesterday that no criminal charges should be brought in the investigation of a duct taping incident at the Heart2Heart Montessori school in Willow Park.

The allegations surfaced in June of last year when an employee of the day care called Kristi Galbraith to tell her that one of the facility’s owners, Pamela Decker, had duct taped their 2 1/2 year old son to a napping map.

The grand jury heard evidence from witnesses on two different days and determined that no felony charges were appropriate.

Parker County District Attorney Don Schnebly said the grand jury’s decision does not have an impact on any civil lawsuit or regulatory matters, where the burden of proof is lower.
