"It was difficult because we do extensive background checks on all our employees and there was no criminal record," he said. "We take very good care of our kids and our families. It's a safe place for children it always has been and always will be."
The court paperwork says that Phoenix police received a report on May 17 of 2016 and contacted the victims' mother. The mother reported to police that another child may also have been victimized by Gattaz. The other victim's mother contacted the Scottsdale Police department.
Both 14-year-old girls reported to police that in separate incidents they were inappropriately touched by Gattaz, one saying she tried to "roll away" from Gattaz but he grabbed her and pulled her back toward him.
The other victim told Gattaz, "This isn't right, this is illegal."
He originally was charged with aggravated assault, sexual abuse and child molestation.
