I'm responding to your front-page article, "O.C. Day-Care Home Closed by Sex Abuse Claim" (March 25), reporting the closure of a Cypress home day-care facility by state officials because of alleged sexual misconduct and child abuse. Having worked as a child-care professional for 10 years, it becomes extremely disheartening to hear reports of suspected child abuse. Most disrupting is the thought of helpless children being victimized. This issue seems to strike a chord of outrage in all decent people.

The Orange County district attorney's office announced Friday that it would not press charges against the owner of a Cypress day-care home who was accused of sexually molesting a child and exhibiting inappropriate sexual behavior in front of other children. "We didn't feel that there was sufficient evidence of criminal behavior," Donna Crandall, a deputy district attorney, said of the case involving the owner of the day-care home, Terri Borzoni, 37, and her assistant, Vicki Jimenez, 21.

A 4-year-old girl who is the state's key witness in a sexual molestation case refused to confirm at a hearing Thursday that the women who operated a day-care home in Cypress had molested her. "Do you remember what you told your mom?" Francine T. Kammeyer, attorney for the state Department of Social Services, asked the child during the 45-minute hearing. "No!" the 4-year-old bellowed, laughing into the microphone that had been placed before her.

A woman testified at a hearing here Wednesday that her 4-year-old daughter told her that two women who operate a day-care home in Cypress had "played doctor" with her and sexually molested her. A psychologist who examined the child this week also testified that the girl told him that the owner of the day-care home, Terri Borzoni, had "put pencils in my bottom." But attorneys for Borzoni, 36, countered that the child's stories are inconsistent and unbelievable.

In the unfolding unpleasantness surrounding the closing of a Cypress day-care home, the next-door neighbor of the operator accused of sexual molestation cut to the heart of the matter with one pained question. "How can they do this on TV if it isn't true?" she asked. Historians may come to use that question to characterize the age in which we live, an age in which there are no more hidden crimes or unspeakable allegations.

Parents and neighbors expressed outrage Wednesday that state officials have temporarily closed a licensed day-care home, saying charges of sexual abuse against the owner and her assistant could not be true. "The whole neighborhood is really upset," said Linda Russell, a next-door neighbor of day-care operator Terri Borzoni. Russell said she has spent the past two days watching TV news crews go in and out of Borzoni's home. "My God, how can (state officials) accuse her.

In a surprising defeat for the state Department of Social Services, a judge has recommended that child abuse charges against a day-care operator be dismissed and that her license be reinstated. Administrative Law Judge Paul Hogan declared last week that the department had insufficient evidence to revoke Terri Borzoni's license, leaving social services officials stunned. It is rare, they said, for a judge to rule against the state agency in such matters.
